DMV expands online options

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation’s Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has enhanced eMV Public, an online title and registration system that can be used when you buy an auto, light truck, motorcycle or SUV from a private seller. eMV Public is one more way DMV customers can ‘skip the trip’ and conduct their DMV business online.

“First-time buyers and those who rarely fill out the forms to transfer title and register a car can feel confident they’ll get it right. Step-by-step prompts, links to FAQs, glossary and other resources are built in to eMV Public,” said Amber Graf, Motor Vehicle Program specialist, in a press release. “It’s hard to make rookie mistakes.” eMV Public links directly from the website. Available 24/7, eMV Public now offers online payment options to complete the process immediately. The title record and license plate information are updated instantly and a temporary license plate can be printed directly from home. The customer must then mail a copy of the receipt along with the title to the DMV for verification but eMV Public streamlines the process.

Payment for title and registration is now collected during the online process. Types of payments accepted by DMV include a valid credit or debit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express) or ACH (Automated Clearing House) payment from your checking or savings account. A convenience fee for credit and debit card payments is charged but not for ACH payments.

Only the website is the official state website. Others are not official and may have extra charges for forms or list information that is dated or incorrect. In addition to the expanding services on its website, WisDOT connects with customers on Facebook ( and Twitter @WisconsinDOT (
