eTITLE streamlines dealer-to-dealer reassignments and trade-in processes for vehicles with a
Texas title or Texas Electronic Lien Title (ELT). eTITLE provides licensed motor vehicle
dealers the ability to electronically create, view, and store vehicle reassignments between

allows a dealer to convert an electronic title (eTitle) into a paper title in the dealer’s name for
the purpose of resale.
