Chapter 5: Odometer Mileage Reporting

5.080 Zero Miles Reported on New Vehicles

Documents submitted for registration of new vehicles may show the odometer mileage as “0,” but due to programming constraints for DMV’s automated system, the number “0” generates an error message.

If an application shows the mileage as “0” the technician must:

  • Key “1” in the ODOMETER field on the DATA COLLECT screen.
  • Continue processing.
