- Exciting innovation: some states are testing electronic plates and digital registration cards
- A handful of states are currently testing electronic plates, an exciting advancement that could revolutionize the way we handle plate transfers. By eliminating traditional mail delays and enabling quick plate transfers, this technology allows for a more streamlined and efficient process – and enables digital registration cards, further enhancing the driver’s experience.

- Change in emission requirements: streamlined process for EV and ICE drivers
- As EV usage continues to increase, ome states are taking measures to remove emission requirements. This change not only benefits EV drivers but also traditional ICE vehicle owners, resulting in an expedited renewal process with reduced documentation.

- Avoid delays: ensure seamless renewals with continuous insurance coverage
- We have recently noticed that many states now require proof of coverage in cases where insurance lapses occur between the insurance company and the DMV. To avoid any delays in renewals, it’s crucial for the insurance carrier to electronically report valid coverage to the DMV. Please note that some states require VIN-specific proof of coverage during lapses. Below is a listing of all states requiring mandatory electronic insurance reporting. Please note: In jurisdictions that allow, such as TX, Wheels has connectivity with the state that reduces the dependency for the driver to mail requirements. We proactively initiate the renewals process upon a passing vehicle emission/inspection eliminating the need for the driver to mail in the document.
- We understand the potential inconvenience this may cause, and we are here to assist you throughout the process. Please reach out to your account manager if you have any questions.
