NHTSA Will Allow Digital Vehicle Transfers in the US

It is no longer required to disclose odometer readings on paper when transferring a vehicle.

The NHTSA has listened to the public and will allow digital odometer disclosure when selling a vehicle. It used to be that sellers had to disclose the odometer reading on paper with handwritten figures including names and the readout.

A Final Rule announced states that it will be possible to file an electronic record of the odometer which, according to the NHTSA, is easier to record and track. It will also make the selling process easier and prevent fraud.

Paperless vehicle odometer disclosers will be required for vehicles who are 20 years old or less.

“This Final Rule was written after carefully considering comments received from the public, including state motor vehicle departments,” NHTSA Acting Administrator James Owens said. “As more records are kept digitally, this rule will allow electronic filing of odometer information. Electronic records are more efficient than paper documentation and are harder to forge, helping to prevent fraud.”
