Requires State programs to establish a system for the inspection of, and issuance of title for, motor vehicles previously registered in another State.
Directs State programs to prohibit the sale of parts of a motor vehicle if a part's identification number has been destroyed, removed, obliterated, or otherwise altered.
Requires State programs to include provisions requiring insurers to release pertinent information to law enforcement officers relative to motor vehicle thefts or accidents.
