California 2013 deadline

This is your one week warning.

Thursday, September 5 marks the last day the California DMV will accept new applications to enroll in the California Electronic Lien and Title (ELT) program before 2014. Participation in the CA ELT program has been mandatory since January 1, 2012, though the DMV has not enforced that requirement.

California only enrolls new participants once a quarter. Applications for the next enrollment period are required approximately 4 months prior to the go live date. The DMV reviews all applications and, once approved, sends a copy of the ELT contract to each participant (lender) which must be signed and returned to the state.

For additional assistance in enrolling and a copy of the ELT application form, please see
