General Information for Dealers and Providers

You may hear Electronic Registration and Titling referred to as ERT.

The Electronic Registration and Titling (ERT) program allows authorized business partners to apply for titles and registrations on newly purchased vehicles electronically. The ERT system is supplied through a service provider that works with the SCDMV.

This is a two-step process. In step one, the dealer enters all the appropriate information and issues a dealer temporary tag to the buyer on the date of sale. In step two, the dealer finalizes the electronic application for the title and registration. Once this is completed and you submit the paperwork, the SCDMV will mail the vehicle license plate and title to the owner. If there's a lien on the vehicle, the title will go to the lienholder.

Information for Dealers Interested in Becoming an ERT Dealer

To become a participating ERT Dealer, you must first select one of the approved ERT Service Providers listed below and sign up with them. The provider you choose will guide you through the application process. Once you sign up and complete your application paperwork, the service provider will submit the application to the SCDMV for approval. Once the application is approved, the service provider will contact you to begin the second step of completing setup and finalize training on its specific system.

By participating in ERT, you can perform all the data entry associated with titling and registering a vehicle as well as issue traceable temporary license plates without visiting an SCDMV branch.

If you have questions about the program, please email or contact the SCDMV.
