Please note that U.S. title history search results are shared with all licensing jurisdictions in Canada through the Interprovincial Records Exchange (IRE). This information may be used by the jurisdiction when determining whether or not to license a vehicle.

Every province and territory has the statutory authority to issue or refuse to issue a license for a vehicle, and a prior U.S. title brand will be one of the factors taken into consideration in the process. Find out more about Vehicle branding history.

Title history searches

RIV recommends that importers conduct a complete title history search on a vehicle before purchase, in order to see all brands assigned to that vehicle by U.S. licensing jurisdictions.

The following companies provide title histories for a fee:
