The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) implemented the Commonweath's Electronic Lien and Title (ELT) System in 1995. The System gives you the capability to electronically exchange lien and title information between the lienholder and the motor vehicle agency. Virginia DMV made use of the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) standards in developing this System.

Beginning in October of 2014, The Virginia Credit Union League of Lynchburg, Virigina, endorses PDP Group, Inc. of Hunt Valley, Maryland as the exclusive electronic lien and title (ELT) service provider in Virginia. Visit their website at To view the entire press release click here.

ELT becomes mandatory in Virginia in October 2015.

PDP Group, Inc. (as a member of AAMVA) worked closely with the state of Virginia to develop a web application that is both easy to use and inexpensive. Simply ELT is robust enough to handle lenders with only 1 lien per year as well as larger lenders with thousands of titles per year.
