  • New Service Fees for Credit Card payments

The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) will start charging service fees to process credit card payments for motor vehicle and driver services transactions.

Currently, the state pays the fees for all transactions that occur through ITD. County Driver’s License and Vehicle Licensing offices already impose service fees on the customer.

While we never want to increase costs to Idahoans, eliminating this extra internal cost will generate additional funding for the state transportation system,” said Alan Frew, ITD motor vehicle administrator.

News Release

  • New Title Status Checker Application Now Available Online

A new application is available from the DMV Online Services site that will allow you to:
• Look up the status of a title application that has recently been submitted
• See the print date of the last Idaho title issued for a vehicle if there is no title application in process

Only applications that have been recorded on the title system by either a county assessor's motor vehicle office or the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) are accessible. Titles are typically mailed the business day following the title issue date. If there is a lien holder recorded, the title or electronic title record will be sent directly to the lien holder, not to the titled owner.

Check Title Status

  • New form of identification required for registering, titling vehicles (July 1, 2009)

Beginning July 1, 2009, individuals registering a motor vehicle in Idaho or seeking a vehicle title will need to provide a full legal name, along with either an Idaho driver’s license number, Idaho-issued ID card number, social security number (SSN), or employer identification number (EIN) for businesses. A verifiable physical address and mailing addresses also will be required.
