Certified Title & Registration Program

 The Certified Title & Registration Program consists of three separate classes: Sales TaxNew to Fleet, and Minnesota Titles and Transfers. These classes have been curated to provide the vital skills and knowledge necessary for optimal performance in the titling and registration department.

Sales Tax (9:00am - 10:00am):
Minnesota motor vehicle sales tax requirements can be complex.  In this class, $10 and $150 in lieu taxes, discounts, rebates, disabled modifications, gift exemption, divorce, trusts and many other special situations and exemptions will be covered.  This class also explores the legal options for dealers titling vehicles for resale and dealership business use.

New to Fleet (10:30am - 12:30pm):
This class addresses transfers which create the first Minnesota Certificate of Title.  These include new vehicle sales, leases and transfers based on out of state titles.  Also, learn about special situations including secure reassignments, secure powers of attorney, dealer conditionals and special plates.

Minnesota Titles and Transfers (1:00pm - 3:00pm):
In this class, you will become proficient in the requirements for transferring ownership of Minnesota titled/registered vehicles; use of Minnesota secure power of attorney and reassignment forms; how to correct ownership, alterations or other incorrect information; and learn about common form attachments (transfer upon death, repossessions, grants or release of liens, and more)

This program is recommended for dealership staff with one to three months of experience with title work. We also recommend taking the Title Basics course prior to attending this program. 


To process titles and registration electronically in the state of Minnesota, a dealership must have an employee(s) with a valid certification.

Certification is awarded by attending ALL three classes and completing each (total of three) test with a score of 70% or higher. If an attendee is unable to complete any of the requirements, they will need to re-take the failed test(s).

 The Certified Title and Registration Program is currently taught by DVS. Test are also administered through DVS.
