Beginning January 2, 2013, and throughout the month, the Department will be working to convert to electronic status all lienholders who have applied for participation in the ELT program. The Department anticipates having all ELT lienholders online and electronic by February 1, 2013.
During this transition period, lienholders may continue to receive paper titles until they have been converted to electronic status.
We sincerely appreciate your patience and cooperation during this transition period.

Lienholders in FL –
ELT Continues to Grow!
FL is the latest state to pass legislation to require most if not all lienholders be set up in the FL DHSMV electronic lien & title program. Beginning January 1, 2013 the Florida DHSMV will require that anyone who records a lien on a vehicle, vessel or mobile home be enrolled in the DHSMV ELT program.
After this date no paper titles with liens will be issued in FL. It is the law! Going forward the DHSMV will only issue paperless titles (also known as ELT).
The Florida law passed on March 9, 2012 and is waiting signature by the Governor. You can read more about the bill by Clicking Here
