DMVs are open for all driver license and ID card customers. Driver licenses can be
renewed online for most customers. All vehicle transactions must be done
online, by mail or
3rd party agents. Vehicle emission extensions have expired. As of August 1, you are required to pass an emission test before renewing your registration.
The title search application will display the date that WisDOT last processed a title for a vehicle if the vehicle identification number (VIN) and owner identifier entered match our records. If your record does not display,
check processing times and mailing information.
Tips for using the title transfer search application
- For best results, use the Wisconsin driver license/ID number for individuals or the FEIN (Federal Employer Identification Number) for non-individual (i.e., businesses, trusts, etc.) searches.
- Do not use the letter "O" when entering in a VIN. Use the number "0."
- Do not use the letters "Q" or "I" when entering in a VIN as these letters are not used in standard VINs.
Note: This WisDOT application is not a secure website. Personal information such as names, address, social security numbers, date of birth, etc. will not be displayed.
This service may not be available on Sundays from 6 a.m.–9 a.m. due to regular system maintenance.
