The Certified Title & Registration Program has been meticulously designed by MADA, Driver and Vehicle Services, and the Deputy Registrars to provide essential training to all individuals involved with titling and registration. Through this unique program only offered by MADA Education, individuals will have the opportunity to be granted access to the State’s new Electronic Vehicle Titling and Registration (EVTR) program that is scheduled to be up and running soon. EVTR is designed to improve accuracy and consistency of data, promote quality customer service, and expedite the production of state titles.
The Certified Title & Registration Program is not designed to introduce attendees to the titling process. It is suggested that those who attend have a minimum of one month of experience working directly with titles.
The Certified Title & Registration Program consists of three separate classes: Sales Tax, New to Fleet, and Minnesota Titles and Transfers. These classes have been curated to provide the vital skills and knowledge necessary for optimal performance in the titling and registration department. All three classes are mandatory and must be successfully completed to become certified and granted access to electronic titling and registration. Testing will be proctored by DVS at the conclusion of each class and a test score of 70% or higher is required for completion. If an individual is unable to successfully complete a specific class, they will be required to retake that class. Successful completion of all three classes will result in certification valid for three years.
Sales Tax (9:00am - 10:00am):
Minnesota motor vehicle sales tax requirements can be complex. In this class, $10 and $90 “in lieu” taxes, discounts, rebates, disabled modifications, gift exemption, divorce, trusts and many other special situations and exemptions will be covered. This class also explores the legal options for dealers titling vehicles for resale and dealership business use.
