With specialized knowledge of motor vehicle law, Stephens-Peck makes legislative code clear and intelligible to the common person. We are committed to providing the most accurate, easiest to use, and most up-to-date information available. As the oldest and most experienced provider of motor vehicle title and registration information, we would like to invite you to take a look at the Peck's Title Book and see for yourself how we can help you.

Our customers include DMVs, County Clerks, County Treasurers, auto dealers, motorcycle dealers, boat dealers, ATV dealers, RV dealers, banks, credit unions, lending institutions, insurance companies, AAA Offices, leasing companies, rental agencies, auctioneers, auto schools, law libraries, attorneys, title agencies, impound facilities, et al.

With each state having its own rules, fees, and forms, you need to know what is required to complete your transaction. Are you tired of returned documentation because you didn't send the right fee or form? Do you have the time to wait on hold for an hour while trying to contact the DMV? Did you lose money on that last transaction because you estimated the fees incorrectly? Peck's Title Book will save you time and money by providing you with all the necessary information. If you are in the business of buying, selling, or trading vehicles, or you just lend the money to do so, let us be your guide!
