Once you complete the out-of-state record request, print the AVP receipt. You may
present it to the other state as proof that Virginia owners and lienholders were
sent certified mail notification by Virginia DMV.
Virginia DMV cannot guarantee that a Virginia owner and/or lienholder exists on
record for the VIN entered. When no Virginia owner and/or lienholder is found, you
will receive a “No Virginia Record Found” receipt verifying that the search in DMV
records for the VIN entered resulted in no owners and/or lienholders.
Additionally, Virginia DMV does not guarantee that the Out-of-State AVP receipt
will be acceptable proof of compliance with abandoned vehicle laws in the state
in which you are processing the abandoned vehicle. Please check the abandoned vehicle
laws in your state.
