eMV Public FAQs - Final Steps

Why do I need to provide a phone number and/or email address?

To contact you if we need more information, documents and/or fees. This information is used only by Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) staff.

Will the phone number or email address be stored at WisDOT?

No. Your phone number and email address are printed on your receipt.

Can I start the eMV Public application and complete it later?

No. If you are unable to complete the eMV Public application after you start, you will need to cancel and start over at a later time.

Can I use the eMV Public application for multiple transfers and submit one payment for all of the applications?

The eMV Public application is designed to process one application for transfer at a time. You may complete the application process for as many eligible vehicles and pay for each transaction separately online with a credit/debit card or ACH payment.

Prompt submission of the documents listed in the eMV Public application ensures prompt completion of your application and delivery of your products — title, license plates (if applicable) and/or vehicle registration.

Who can I contact if I am having problems with the eMV Public application system?

Contact the eMV Public Support Team at emvpublic@dot.wi.gov or at (608) 267-9418 between 8 a.m. and 4:15 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Is there a way I can track the progress of my application once I have sent the required documents and payment to WisDOT?

Yes, by using our free where's my title? online application.

When can I expect to receive my products, (title, vehicle registration and/or license plates) after I mail my paper documents?

Once we receive the required documentation, your transaction will be completed within 24-48 hours. After we complete your application, please allow 7-10 business days to receive your Wisconsin title, license plates (if applicable) and Certificate of Vehicle Registration. You can check the status of your application by using our free where's my title? online application.​

All products are mailed first class mail. The license plates (and stickers) are mailed separately from the Certificate of Title and Certificate of Vehicle Registration.

Upon receipt of your Wisconsin title and registration, you should separate the title from the registration and place the title in a secure place. The Certificate of Vehicle Registration should be kept in the glove compartment of your vehicle to use as proof of registration to law enforcement upon request.
