The points of identification that are needed to obtain Registration and Titles for customers can be complicated. It’s helpful for dealers to know what can be accepted, what can’t, and what gets them only partway toward reaching the necessary six points of ID. The following is our list of “most frequent offenders” in no particular order: Zero Points: - The Global Entry Card from U.S. Customs and Border Protection is worth zero points. - The IDNYC card is not acceptable. (A NYS-issued Non-Drivers ID is worth the full six points.) Partial Points: - A United States Employment Authorization Card with photo is worth three points.
- A US College ID with photo must be accompanied by an Official Transcript and is worth two points. (It is also not sufficient DOB proof.) - A paystub must have the person’s name printed on it, and is worth one point. (It is also not sufficient DOB proof.) - A Canadian Driver License is worth two points.
- A NYS Driver License with expired visitor’s status is not acceptable for any points, even if the license itself is not expired. - An International Driver License (not including Canada) is worth zero points.
CONNECTICUT DMV UPGRADES —
Unit, at 860.263.5056.) The new number should begin with the letter “O” followed by four numerical digits, and should be indicated on lease paperwork, in order to expedite processing. DMV-DIRECT LENDS AN IMPORTANT HAND The Connecticut DMV took their services offline for a week, in order to perfect their system upgrades, resulting in increased wait times. While CT worked to reduce those delays, GNYADA, through DMV-DIRECT, was able to service members who needed to complete Connecticut work for their customers. CT DMV subsequently advised New York dealers — who normally used the Norwalk, Bridgeport or Danbury offices of Connecticut DMV — to instead use DMV-DIRECT, to process the paperwork for their Connecticut deals. DMV-DIRECT was able to complete CT registrations and issue plates within three days of receiving the work. For dealers who needed same-day turnarounds, the office accommodated most of those requests as well. The CT DMV may make further adjustments in order to fine- tune functionality and eliminate delays. As we receive notice of these enhancements, we will pass them along to you. If you have any questions regarding DMV-DIRECT’s CT service, please give us a call: (718)747-0400.
DMV-DIRECT has a longstanding relationship with the Connecticut DMV, to help NewYork dealers process transactions for their Connecticut customers. In August, 2015, CT launched a new title/registration system, including process revisions and software updates that will streamline those CT transactions. Changes for Metro NY dealers to note: • CT registration documents are no longer printed on light blue card stock; they’re now on plain white paper. • DMV-DIRECT can register CT customers with non- Connecticut licenses, by calling the CT DMV and providing the driver’s license ID number. • If a customer has a change of address, DMV-DIRECT can submit a CT B-58 form with the original registration/title documents, in order to process the change for the customer. • Each CT deal now requires a Q-1 form, along with the NY MV-50. (The Q-1 is essentially CT’s equivalent of the MV-50.) • New insurance cards are required to display the customer’s name and address, the year, make and VIN number for the vehicle, the insurance policy number, effective date and expiration date, as well as the insurance company’s company code number (NAIC#). Lease deals may take longer, if the leasing company has not applied for its unique “NEW lease license number” from the CT DMV. (They can do this by contacting the Dealer Repair
