Tresl Title Updates: COVID-19 Impact

Last Update: 02/12/21

Since March of 2020 we have taken appropriate measures to remain open so that we can continue to support our customers auto finance decisions during the COVID-19 Pandemic. The nature of our process allows us to continue to serve customers wherever they are, whether they are refinancing an auto loan or purchasing a vehicle.

We are working diligently to remedy the accumulated delays due to COVID-19 impacting  the completion of your title and registration process.  We continue to ask for your patience as we are  dependent on DMV offices and the delays they may be experiencing across the country.

While COVID-19 continues to impact our Title and Registration processing times, for the great majority of states Tresl’s current processing time is  4 to 5 weeks.

We understand some processing times are longer than expected. We are aware there are some exceptions, as these are very specific variables impacted from the supply chain disruption across the country, as follows at the time of publication of this update:

DC, DE, GA, NV, PA, TX and VT have an average processing time of 8 weeks

AL, KY, NE, OR and NH have an average processing time of 12 weeks

RI has an average processing time of 14 weeks

Temporary permits issued by our office fall under the oversight of the State of Texas*.  Currently a Governor’s waiver is in effect to extend all 30-day temporary permits, which Tresl issues on purchase transactions. This waiver will be in effect until 60 days after TxDMV notifies the public that normal vehicle registration, vehicle titling and related services have resumed. Read more at the State of Texas Governor’s website.  The temporary waiver of certain vehicle title and registration requirements, announced by Governor Greg Abbott on March 16, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic remains in effect, you can see more details here

Please check back to this page for any updates regarding Tresl’s response to COVID-19 and changes at different states’ Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) that may impact the timelines of vehicle titling & registration.

We will continue to monitor this quickly evolving situation, and we are here to assist you in every possible way. Should you have any questions, please reach out to for assistance. We will do our best to reply and work items in the order they are received. Thank you.

Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) Updates

DMVs in all states are receiving mail now. However, have temporarily reduced their scope of service (e.g. reduced staff, some locations closed, etc.). Please expect delays in titling & registration from DMVs across the nation.  Please refer to your state’s DMV website for more specific information on closures, delays, and services that can be performed online.
