Effective January 1, 2016

A recent audit of the IVIPS system revealed a programming issue that did not address costs for records obtained through research. When IVIPS customers request additional records through research, things like title histories, reports of sale, vehicle data information sheets (fee breakdowns), the system has not charged the fee of $2.00 defined in statute. This error has been corrected and appropriate fees will appear in monthly billings.

New Fee Effective January 1, 2014:

Businesses will be charged $2.00 for each record returned on IVIPS. The $2 per record fee will be included on your IVIPS bill after the change takes effect, and is in addition to the 4-cent per inquiry fee for the use of the IVIPS system. Government agencies are exempt from the $2 per record fee. This fee is pursuant to Substitute Senate Bill 5182 and RCW 46.12.635.
