NYSADA Meets with DMV Commissioner on VERIFI

NYSADA together with the Regional Associations just completed a meeting with the Acting DMV Commissioner Terri Egan and high ranking DMV staff members on the VERIFI program. For the past several weeks, NYSADA had been inundated with questions and concerns from dealers about the VERIFI program including:

• How to access the system
• How to upload the vehicle inventory
• Lack of response time when calling or emailing Vanguard
• Misunderstanding about new procedure to order MV-50’s
• Is this program going to be delayed
• Most critical of all is concern about maintaining a continuous supply of paper MV-50’s while under
going the transformation to the new system.            

The DMV acknowledged that the waiting times to talk to a Vanguard representative are too long and Vanguard has been asked by the DMV to immediately add more staff to their Help desk (833) 837-4346 or The DMV affirmed at the meeting there are no plans to delay this program.

The DMV has stressed the necessity to send each MV-50 book back immediately. Do not wait and bundle multiple books together. They have also advised that you now have the ability to issue an electronic MV-50 to an in state purchaser even if you have not yet uploaded all your inventory. If you are experiencing a paper MV-50 crisis, please email your dealership name, facility number, a brief description of the problem and contact information for a person to whom the DMV can respond to or We will pass this information on to the DMV. At the meeting today, the DMV assured NYSADA they would do everything in their power to make sure dealerships would be able to maintain a supply of MV-50’s. If you have any questions, please call the Association at (518) 463-1148 and speak to Peter Marthy (ext. 206) or Ed Richardson (ext. 210).
