BREAKING NEWS: GREEN LIGHT LAW. (7 february 2020)
Please note an immediate change to way Vehicle Exports will be processed nationwide by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) until further notice.
Recent changes by New York state, the Green Light Law, added a provision that restricts access to their Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) by CBP.
As a result, CBP no longer has the ability to obtain New York DMV records and this loss in access prevents CBP from validating export documentation for vehicles with New York titles and registrations.
Effective immediately, all exports of New York titles or New York registrations vehicles will be placed on hold.
" Under the Green Light Law, no DMV data of any kind can be shared with an agency that primarily enforces immigration law, which means ICE, Customs & Border Protection and Citizenship and Immigration Services do not have access to data unless the DMV is presented with a valid judge-signed court order, subpoena or judicial warrant."
