California passes law requiring a vehicle history report from an authorized NMVTIS provider (RigDig)

Sep | 30 | 11

On September 26, 2011, California passed the nation’s first law requiring all used vehicle dealers to run a vehicle history report from an authorized National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (“NMVTIS”) provider on used vehicles offered for sale in California. This law applies to both car dealers and heavy-duty truck dealers and will go into effect on July 1, 2012.  Read more.

The Department of Justice maintains the NMVTIS database that requires junk yards, salvage yards, auto recyclers, insurance carriers and state motor vehicle departments to report information that can be vital to a purchase decision.

California heavy-duty truck dealers can comply with this new law by subscribing to a RigDig Truck History Reports.  RigDig is a new service that launched at the Great American Truck Show in August 2011.  RigDig is an authorized NMVTIS provider that is designed specifically for the trucking industry.  It helps owner-operators, dealers and fleets make more informed used truck purchase decisions.

2.8% of all RigDig Reports run by users were for trucks that were flagged as either Junk, Salvage or had a serious Salvage Title.
