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.
