What is the CA ELT program?
The electronic lien and title (ELT) program is a method by which the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and a lending institution (lienholder) exchange vehicle and title information electronically. Instead of printing a paper title and mailing it to the lienholder, the CA DMV transmits title information electronically to the lienholder’s ELT service provider.

The ELT program lowers processing costs and increased efficiencies for all parties by eliminating the mailing, filing and retrieving of a paper title.

Who is required to participate?
At this time, the program is not mandatory for lenders.

How do I get my title?
At the time of release, a paper title will be generated and mailed to the vehicle owner, transferred to another lienholder, who participates in the CA ELT program or reassigned to a dealer or insurance company.
