DVS Home – Vehicle Title Transfer

headlamp-web.jpg

Important Note:

Title applications are received daily and DVS processes requests in the order in which they are received.

A certificate of title is proof of ownership. You may transfer the title of a vehicle at any deputy registrar office. If a vehicle is purchased through a licensed Minnesota dealer, the dealer will take care of the transfer paperwork.

 

Duplicate Title

A duplicate title means that the original title has been lost, mutilated or stolen and the owner had to apply for a replacement. It contains the legend: “This Duplicate Certificate of Title may be subject to the rights of a person under the original certificate.”

 

Lien (Adding or Removing)

The term “security interest” (lien) refers to an agreement between the vehicle owner and the lender (lien holder), using the vehicle as collateral. While the vehicle title is mailed to the owner of the vehicle, a lien card is

American Vintage Bicycles

American Vintage Bicycles

Collecting American Vintage bicycles is a hobby many people don’t understand until they’re deeply immerged within their newly-forming obsession. Even those who love bicycles and bicycling, as I do, don’t know much about the world of classic bicycles. It seems we’re too busy concentrating on the newest or latest bicycling fads, equipment, and technology.

After starting my first website about Bicycles and Bicycling, I’ve discovered a whole new world of cycling with vintage and old bicycles. After bidding on my first vintage bike on eBay, this beautiful Elgin bicycle, I was hooked.

Disability Rights Education & Defense Fund

Access to public transportation is a key to independence and full community participation for people with disabilities. The Americans with Disabilities Act sets forth specific requirements for transit systems including fixed route buses, light and heavy rail systems, ADA complementary paratransit, over-the-road buses, shuttles, and other forms of publicly and privately-funded public transportation. DREDF advocates for the development and implementation of strong, comprehensive ADA transportation requirements, works toward additional accessible transportation service, and provides in-depth training for people with disabilities and others on ADA transportation that includes current policy developments and best practices.

Fully autonomous vehicles (AV) or self-driving cars are on the horizon. Self-driving cars can cause the kind of cataclysmic change in the lives of people with disabilities that the invention of the automatic washing machine did for women. But, the promise of the technology will only be realized if the cars are truly accessible to people with

Definition and Examples of Vehicles in Metaphors

In a metaphor, the vehicle is the figure of speech itself–that is, the immediate image that embodies or “carries” the tenor (the subject of the metaphor). The interaction of vehicle and tenor results in the meaning of the metaphor.

For example, if you call a person who spoils other people’s fun a “wet blanket,” “wet blanket” is the vehicle and the spoilsport is the tenor.

The terms vehicle and tenor were introduced by British rhetorician Ivor Armstrong Richards in The Philosophy of Rhetoric (1936). Richards emphasized the “tension” that often exists between vehicle and tenor. 

In the article “Metaphor Shifting in the Dynamics of Talk,” Lynne Cameron observes that the “multiple possibilities” evoked by a vehicle “are both derived from and constrained by speakers’ experience of the world, their socio-cultural contexts, and their discourse purposes” (Confronting Metaphor in Use, 2008).

Fuel Costs

Whether a buyer is considering new or used options, one important factor in the decision must be fuel costs. As gas prices rise in the U.S., fuel costs have become a salient consideration. Inefficient vehicles, such as large SUVs and trucks, not only cost more for fuel to operate, but in many areas, these large gas-guzzlers are considered environmentally irresponsible. No matter the buyer’s views on the environment, driving a fuel efficient car will save money. Vehicles generally become more efficient over time as new models meet stricter fuel efficiency requirements. If you are a long distance commuter for work, it might be worth paying more for a new vehicle to save on the cost of fuel.

Energy efficient cars are generally smaller than full-sized or luxury vehicles. Very efficient options include those that operate with electricity, such as hybrid models. Though most hybrids, such as the Prius,
