Electronic Titles

An electronic title (E-Title) is a title record that is being held in Electronic status. Typically, when vehicles are purchased using a loan, the title is held in electronic form and called an “Electronic Lien Title” (ELT). The only difference between an E-Title and an ELT is that there is a lien on the ELT. In both cases, a paper title has NOT been printed. When a vehicle owner no longer has a lien on a vehicle, he/she can maintain the title in electronic status as an E-title, or request a paper copy of the title.
 
A vehicle owner will need a paper copy of the ELT or E-Title, if the vehicle is transferring ownership to an individual. Vehicles traded to a Florida dealer are not required to convert the E-title to paper.
