There will be system maintenance performed on the Dealer System on Friday, July 31 between 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. Your system may be unavailable during this period.


It is important to note the e-lien-holder name and e-code on the application for title as an E-Title when the paperwork is dropped off at the County Clerk of Courts office. Failure to do so will cause a paper title to be submitted to the lien holder and a replacement title (as an e-title) would be required with a replacement fee.


***Dear Stakeholders,***
Pursuant to the requirements of Executive Order 2011-011K and Senate Bill 2 of the 129th General Assembly, which requires state agencies, including the Ohio Department of Public Safety, Dealer Licensing Section to review and draft rules in collaboration with stakeholders, assess and justify any adverse impact on the business community (as defined by Senate Bill 2), and provide opportunity for interested parties to provide input on proposed rules.

The Dealer Licensing Section has the following rule, which is an existing rule being reviewed: Ohio Administrative Code, 4501:1-3-08, is the requirements for place of business required for used motor vehicle dealers, which are required to be licensed by Chapter 4517 of the Revised Code.

All parties are invited to offer suggestions, comments, or propose amendments to the attached rule being reviewed. All correspondence can be submitted to sstedtefeld@dps.ohio.gov no later than June 7, 2015. If any amendments are made to the rule, that rule will be drafted and re-submitted to all participating parties for review prior to posting the rule for public comment on the small business regulatory website. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Sarah Stedtefeld at (614) 728 -0383. We value all input and concerns from our stakeholders and look forward to participating in the rule review process together.
