Ohio Electronic Liens & Titles (ELT)

Frequently Asked Questions about ELT in Ohio:

Is the ELT program mandatory in Ohio?

No. Ohio does not require participation in the ELT program.

How do I sign up for the ELT program?

You need to complete a form entitled "Electronic Liens and Titles Participant Agreement". Find one available on http://www.etitlelien.com/eltOh.aspx.

I understand that titles are not automatically printed by the BMV after I release my lien. How does my customer get a printed title?

Ohio uses the term "non-printed" to designate electronic titles. An owner should request a printed title in person from a county office. There is a fee as this request generates a replacement title.

Note that a "non-printed" title can be requested by anyone in Ohio: owner or lienholder. A paper title is not required for every transaction. For instance, Ohio answers the question "My title is an electronic title. How may I sell my vehicle to a dealer?" by explaining

The dealer can complete a BMV 3772 form to allow the transfer to or from a motor vehicle dealer. It has a provision for stating mileage and power of attorney.
