Dealer Reassignment of Title (DRT-1) forms are used by Licensed Massachusetts Automobile Dealers for the following transactions:
- Reassignment of Title - The selling Massachusetts Dealer completes the front (control numbered) side when all other reassignments on the Title have been completed. Do not use DRT-1 if there is an available assignment on the back of the Title or if there is an available reassignment on any attached Dealer Reassignment form, including one from another state. Always use the first available reassignment.
- Authorization for Loan Payoff - Complete the back side as an Assignment and Authorization for Payoff. The vehicle owner(s) must sign, print name, date and disclose the mileage on the DRT-1 form, authorizing the dealer to pay off the lien and obtain the Title from the lien holder. Provide the lien holder a copy of the form along with payment. When you receive the title, attach the original DRT-1 to the title. The DRT-1 is used in lieu of the Assignment of Title by Owner on the title and transfers ownership of the vehicle to the dealer.
- Authorization for Duplicate Title - Complete the back side as an Assignment for Duplicate Certificate of Title and complete an Application for Duplicate Certificate of Title form. The customer must sign both forms, authorizing the RMV to mail the Duplicate Title to the dealer, and assigning the Duplicate Title to the dealer. Attach a copy of the DRT-1 form to the Duplicate Title Application and bring it to the nearest RMV Branch office or mail to address on the application. When you receive the Duplicate Title, attach the original DRT-1 to the title. The DRT-1 is used in lieu of the Assignment of Title by Owner on the title and transfers ownership of the vehicle to the dealer.
The "Red Control Number" on the front side of the DRT-1 form must be entered on the corresponding page of the Dealer Used Car Record Book (bottom center of the page) for every reassignment used, for any of the purposes described above.
