Electronic vehicle titling and registration. Permits the Department of Motor Vehicles to expand the existing electronic titling program for new motor vehicles to all applications for original motor vehicle titles, thereby authorizing person-to-person online titling. The bill authorizes the Department to charge certain fees. The bill also allows for the online registration of such motor vehicles, allows for the issuance of a temporary certificate of registration valid for no more than 30 days, and makes discretionary the current requirement to search a nationally recognized motor vehicle title database prior to transfer of vehicle ownership.
