6. Lien Process.
7. Junk Certificate: Issued to a licensed wrecker or tow operator.
ACQUIRING PARTS OF PARTIAL VEHICLES
When an automobile wrecker acquires parts of a vehicle through purchase or exchange,
a bill of sale from the owner of the parts must be maintained.
1. If a vehicle that has been partially dismantled is acquired, a written statement
from the owner, listing those parts that have previously been removed is
required.
2. If the part includes the frame or other major component, a salvage title may be
required.
DETERMINING AN ENTIRE VEHICLE OR PARTIAL VEHICLES
1. Whenever an entire salvage vehicle is sold to any person by a licensed
automobile wrecker, the automobile wrecker shall deliver a properly endorsed
salvage title to the buyer for such an entire salvage vehicle.
2. A salvage vehicle shall be deemed an entire salvage vehicle:
Revised June 2009 3 Section I (a) If all the following essential components are included and identifiable as
coming from the same salvage vehicle:

(1) The cowl assembly;
(2) The floor pan assembly;
(3) The passenger compartment;
(4) The rear clip assembly; and
(5) The roof assembly; and
(b) In addition to the essential components required pursuant to paragraph
(a):
(1) If the salvage vehicle was manufactured with a conventional frame,
the conventional frame is included and identifiable as coming from
the same salvage vehicle;
(2) If the salvage vehicle was manufactured with a unibody, the
complete front inner structure is included and identifiable as coming
from the same salvage vehicle;
(3) If the salvage vehicle is a truck which was manufactured with a
conventional frame, the conventional frame and the truck cab

(4) If the salvage vehicle is a truck which was manufactured with a
unibody, the complete front inner structure and the truck cab
assembly are included and identifiable as coming from the same
salvage vehicle.
3. A salvage vehicle that does not satisfy the requirements of subsection 2 is
deemed a part or parts of an entire salvage vehicle.
Revised June 2009 4 Section I GUIDELINES
Always type or print in black or dark blue ink.

The owner’s full legal name and address information must be recorded on registration
and title documents exactly as it reads on the owner’s driver’s license.
Ensure the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), year, make, odometer readings and
registered owner and legal owner information are consistent on all documents.
Signatures must always be handwritten, unless waived by the Department because the
submittal is done by electronic means. A printed release will not be accepted unless
accompanied by a notarized or witnessed statement (from the person in question)
stating that the signature is a legal signature.
Do not use correction fluid or correction tape.
Do not alter any information on documents.
A release should be the same, as it appears on title documents, i.e., Elizabeth should
sign as Elizabeth.
All documents must be originals, unless certified to be true copies of the original
document. Only certain documents can be accepted as true and exact copies.
Revised June 2009 5 Section I IMPORTANCE OF ACCURACY
The Department of Motor Vehicles uses the VIN as the primary identifier for entry and
retrieval of records. It is therefore critical that all documents are completed using the
correct VIN.
TO AVOID ERRORS:
• Ensure the entire VIN is used at all times.
• Ensure the VIN is entered or recorded legibly and accurately. It is best to use
block letters.
• If the VIN is handwritten, try to avoid the following most common errors:
LETTER MAY BE MISTAKEN FOR
B 13 or 8
D 0
G 6 or C
J T or I or 5
R K
S 5
Y 4 or H
U Y or V
Z 2 or a 7 on a line
“I” and “1” are often confused. The letter “I” is rarely used in a VIN. The number 9
and/or 4 can also be confused if not written legibly.
The letter “O” is never used in a VIN, with the exception of state assigned VINs, such as
those that are assigned by the states of Colorado (i.e., COLO123456) or Missouri
(DR000000MO or DRMVB0000000000MO).
Revised June 2009 6 Section I VEHICLES IDENTIFICATION NUMBER INFORMATION
Since 1954, American automobile manufacturers have used a Vehicle Identification
Number (VIN) to identify and describe a vehicle.
Since 1981, all manufacturers of vehicles sold in the United States are required to use a
standardized 17-digit VIN structure. When the Department is provided with a vehicle
that has an 18-digit VIN, the VIN will be verified before the vehicle information is
entered.
Variations exist in the location of a VIN and in the systems used for a VIN; they may
vary by year of manufacture and between manufacturers.
A VIN should always be verified by a physical inspection of the vehicle.

MOTOR HOME
Motor homes are vehicles described as permanently attached to a self-propelled
chassis and are designed for use as temporary living quarters. Nevada Revised
Statutes defines three types of motor homes.
Note: The legal maximum width of a recreational vehicle is 102 inches excluding
mirrors, lights and other devices required for safety; and an awning and any hardware
used to attach the awning, but it cannot extend beyond any mirror.
Mini motor home (NRS 482.066): A vehicular-type unit designed for temporary living
quarters for travel, camping or recreational use, which is:
1. A structure attached permanently on a self-propelled chassis; or
2. A portable unit designed to be affixed permanently to a truck chassis with cab,
which is designated as a mini motor home by the manufacturer.
Motor home (NRS 482.071): A structure:
1. Attached permanently to a self-propelled motor vehicle chassis;
2. Designed as a temporary dwelling for travel, recreational or camping use; and
3. When assembled for the road, having a maximum body width of 102 inches.
Revised June 2009 8 Section I Chassis-mount camper (NRS 482.0151):
A portable unit designed to be permanently affixed to a truck chassis and cab, and so
constructed as to provide temporary living quarters for travel, camping or recreational
use.
In all cases, the chassis/frame number is used as the Vehicle Identification Number
(VIN). The make of the vehicle is the motor home name, not the chassis/frame
manufacturer.
Example: Winnebago makes the Itasca and Fleetwood makes the Tioga. The
makes are therefore Itasca and Tioga; Winnebago and Fleetwood are not used.
The vehicle year is established by the manufacturer on the vehicle’s original documentation.
In all cases, the vehicle length must be included on the registration and title documents as
part of the vehicle description.
Recreational park trailer (NRS 482.1005) means a vehicle, which is primarily designed
to provide temporary living quarters for recreational, camping or seasonal use and
which:
1. Is built on a single chassis mounted on wheels;
2. Has a gross trailer area not exceeding 400 square feet in the set-up mode; and
3. Is certified by the manufacturer as complying with Standard No. A119.5 of the
American National Standards Institute.
Note: The Department will issue a title only for recreational park trailers because they
are over 102 inches in width. Moving a recreational park trailer requires a special
movement permit issued by the Department of Transportation.
Revised June 2009 9 Section I NOTARIES PUBLIC
A licensed Nevada dealer’s signature is not required to be acknowledged by a notary
public on documents that the dealer must file with the Department, except in regard to
deposit in lieu of bond. Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) 482.3275
If a document must be notarized, the provisions of NRS 240.010 through 240.150 must
be followed.
A notary public may not perform any act authorized by NRS 240.065 if he or she:
1. Executed or is named in the instrument acknowledged or sworn to;
2. Will receive directly from a transaction relating to the instrument any commission,
fee, advantage, right, title or interest, property or other consideration in excess of
the authorized fees; or
3. Is related to the person whose signature is to be acknowledged or sworn to as a
spouse, sibling, or lineal ancestor or descendant.

OWNERSHIP DOCUMENTS
AND FORMS
Revised June 2009 Section II NEVADA TITLE
NRS 482.285 and 482.400
There are currently several valid styles of Nevada Certificates of Title (Form RD-2) in
circulation. For the purpose of this guide, only the three most recent styles will be
addressed (Revisions 1/06, 10/01, and 10/96).
The registered owner or seller must sign the certificate of title exactly as the name
appears on the face of the certificate of title.
• If there is more than one registered owner or seller, and they are joined by “and,”
the signature of each owner or seller is required.
• If there is more than one registered owner or seller, and they are joined by
“and/or” or “or,” only one of the owner’s or seller’s signature is required.
• If there is more than one registered owner or seller, and not joined by “and” or
“and/or” or “or”, the signature of each registered owner or seller is required. The
Department considers no name indicator as “and” in these cases.
• If the registered owner or seller information is in the name of a business, the
name of the business must appear along with the signature of an authorized
business representative.
Buyer information must be completed indicating exactly how the new Certificate of Title
is to read, using the buyer’s full legal name as it appears on their driver’s license.

TOWING ABANDONED VEHICLES
NRS 487.095
NAC 487.030
Nevada licensed Automobile Wreckers and Tow Car Operators who remove abandoned
vehicles from public or private property as prescribed by NRS 487.230 may place a lien
on the vehicle for towing and storage charges.
The vehicle must be declared abandoned on public property by a law enforcement
agency or on private property by the property owner or person in lawful possession of
the private property. NRS 258.125 entitles a $50.00 fee be paid to a constable who
requests a vehicle be removed from public property after the lien has been satisfied.
Whenever a vehicle has been removed to a garage or other place as provided by NRS
487.230, the owner of the garage or the automobile wrecker who towed the vehicle has
a lien on the vehicle for the costs of towing and storing for a period not exceeding 90
days.
Nevada Administrative Code 487.030 sets towing fees at a fixed rate of $55.00,
regardless of the time of day, the distance to the vehicle or the type of equipment used
to tow the vehicle.
For every abandoned vehicle, a tow company or wrecker must have in their possession
one of the following documents as proof the vehicle quailfies as an abandoned vehicle;
• For a law enforcement ordered impound of an abandoned vehicle, a law
enforcement agency impound report identifying the vehicle as impounded as an
“abandoned vehicle”.
If a vehicle is impounded for some other reason, the impound report will indicate that
fact i.e., “impounded” or “stored” and the appropriate box on the form will be checked.
For those categories of tow, there should be an explanation written on the form
describing whether or not there are holds on the vehicle and the terms or conditions for
release of that vehicle. Vehicles impounded by law enforcement or other enforcment
agencies that are not classified “abandoned” may only be processed by a tow company
or wrecker in accordance with the provisions of NRS 108.265 to NRS 108.367 inclusive.
Such vehicles include but are not limited to, vehicles impounded and stored as a result
of a traffic accident, traffic citation, arrest, or for any reason not classified as
“abandoned”. Such impounds may NOT be reclassified or the reason for towing
changed, to allow the vehcle to be processed as an abandoned vehicle.
• If an abandoned vehicle has been towed as a result of a property owner or
property manager’s request to remove an abandoned vehicle from their private
property, a “PRIVATE PROPERTY ABANDONED VEHICLE RELEASE” (POR)
form is required by the Department as proof of a private property abandoned
vehicle impound. Automobile Wrecker and Tow Car Operator Guide
Revised June 2009 2 Section V
A DMV Appraiser may request documents from a tow company operator or wrecker to
support their acquisition of an abandoned vehicle listed on the companies abandoned
vehicle transmittal sheet. If such a request is made, the tow company operator or
wrecker must provide either a “POR” or the police impound report indicating the vehicle
was abandoned.
The DMV Appraiser may request additional documents to support the tow company or
wreckers acquisition of a vehicle. If a tow company operator or wrecker refuses or is
unable to produce the required documents or additional supportive documents that
support the tow company or wrecker’s possession of a vehicle, the DMV Appraiser may
refuse to appraise that vehicle.
The only alternative to the law enforcement impound or private property abandoned
vehicle release would be an order issued by a court having jurisdiction declaring a
vehicle or group of vehicles be removed from private or public property as abandoned
vehicles.
“Private Property Abandoned Vehicle Release” or (POR) form;
• The “POR” form is used by the tow company or wrecker when they are requested
to remove an abandoned vehicle or vehicles by a private property owner or
property manager.
• With the exception of the spaces provided for “Registered and/or Legal Owner”
information, which may not be known for abandoned vehicles, the form must be
completed in its entirety.
• The form is maintained as a record of the tow company or wreckers authorization
to remove a vehicle from private or public property. The “POR” must be produced
when requested by a DMV Apraiser or law enforcement officer making inquiries
regarding the vehicle or its removal from private or public property. Automobile Wrecker and Tow Car Operator Guide

ABANDONED VEHICLE LIENS
NRS 487.205
Automobile wreckers and tow car operators who remove abandoned vehicles from
public or private property as prescribed by NRS 487.270 may place a lien on the vehicle
for towing and storage charges.
A vehicle must be declared as abandoned on public property by a law enforcement
agency and on private property by the property owner or person in lawful possession of
the private property.
Vehicles impounded by law enforcement as a result of a traffic accident, a traffic
violation or arrest, or received by the tow car company operator or wrecker for any other
non-abandoned vehicle tow, may not be reclassified as abandoned vehicles regardless
of their value.
A lien associated with towing, storage and administrative fees for vehicles impounded
under those conditions must be processed as labor liens for towing and storage in
accordance with the provisions of NRS 108.265 to NRS 108.367 inclusive.
A tow company operator or wrecker cannot declare or reclassify vehicles as
“abandoned” as a result of a law enforcement impound for the purpose of circumventing
the requirements of chapter 108 of the Nevada Revised Statute.
As prescribed by NRS 706.4479, automobile wreckers and tow car operators must
make every reasonable attempt and use all resources reasonably necessary, as
evidenced by written documentation, to obtain the identity of the owner and any other
necessary information from the agency charged with the registration of the motor
vehicle in this State or any other state within:
• 21 days after placing the motor vehicle in storage if the motor vehicle was towed
at the request of a law enforcement officer following an accident involving the
motor vehicle; or
• 15 days after placing any other motor vehicle in storage.
The tow operator or wrecker shall attempt to notify the owner of the vehicle by
registered or certified mail as soon as possible, but in no case later than 15 days after
identification of the owner is obtained for any motor vehicle. Pursuant to NRS 706.4477,
if a request to tow is by the owner or agent of the owner of real property, it is presumed
the registered owner abandoned the vehicle and is responsible for the cost of removal
and storage. The registered owner may rebut the presumption by showing the he
transferred his interest in the motor vehicle or prove the vehicle was stolen.
If an operator includes in his tariff a fee to be charged to the registered and legal owner
of a vehicle for the towing and storage of the vehicle, the fee may not be charged: Automobile Wrecker and Tow Car Operator Guide
Revised June 2009 5 Section V
• For more than 21 days after placing the motor vehicle in storage if the motor
vehicle was towed at the request of a law enforcement officer following an
accident involving the motor vehicle; or
• For more than 15 days after placing any other vehicle in storage,
• Unless the operator complies with the notification requirements.
Note: The 15 days referred to in this section under “Abandoned Vehicle Liens” should
not be confused with, or applied to, NRS 487.210 when defining an abandoned vehicle,
and does not qualify a vehicle as abandoned should there be no response to the notice
sent. In order for the provisions of NRS 487.250, subsections 3 and 4 to apply, the
vehicle must first be included on an abandoned vehicle transmittal form, be confirmed
by a Department representative as acquired by the tow company or wrecker as an
abandoned vehicle, then appraised by a Department representative at a value of $500
or less.
NRS 706.4468 allows the Nevada Transportation Authority to reduce any charge for
preparing or satisfying a lien which is filed by the tow operator if the Nevada
Transportation Authority determines that all or part of the charge is attributable to the
operator’s failure to prepare or satisfy the lien in a timely manner.
If a licensed Nevada Automobile Wrecker tows the vehicle; the tow bill must be
completed in full and must contain the following information:
• Business name, address, telephone number and certificate number or DMV
business license number.
• Address of the facility where the vehicle is stored.
• Date and time of the request for towing including designations to “am” or “pm”.
• Name and address of the registered owner of the towed vehicle, if available.
• The year, make, model, vehicle identification number, license plate number and
state of issuance.
• Exact location from where vehicle was towed.
• Address of the location to which the vehicle was towed, if different from the
where the vehicle is being stored.
• The time the wrecker was dispatched to tow the vehicle and the reading of the
odometer of the tow vehicle at the beginning of the trip. Automobile Wrecker and Tow Car Operator Guide
Revised June 2009 6 Section V
• The time of the arrival of the tow car at the site of the car to be towed and the
reading on the odometer upon its arrival.
• The time of the departure of the tow car from the site of the vehicle to be towed.
• The time of the arrival of the tow car at the location to where the vehicle was

and ending times. If more space is needed for the listing, a separate sheet of
paper must be attached to the bill and a notation made on the bill that an
additional sheet is attached. If the tow was requested by a constable, include the
$50 fee.
• The date and the time the storage of the vehicle started and ended and a
notation of whether the vehicle was stored inside a locked building or in a
secured, fenced area.
• Statement of total charges for towing.
• Of the action the registered and legal owner of the vehicle may take to recover
