The purpose of this bulletin is to inform insurers that the Texas Financial Responsibility Verification Program (FRVP) Reporting Guide and User Manual (user manual), which provides technical guidance to insurers on compliance with the requirements and procedures specified in the FRVP rules (28 TAC §§5.601 - 5.611), has been updated. The updates are outlined in Appendix 1 of the Reporting Guide and User Manual, Version 1.3. The new version of the user manual provides suggested data clean-up procedures that insurers may wish to incorporate. Additionally, an updated Attachment 4, "Sample Written Communication for Error Correction," provides additional information on the vehicle title correction process through the Texas Department of Transportation.
The updated version of the user manual may be obtained from the Property and Casualty General Management Section of the Texas Department of Insurance (Department), Mail Code 105-5F, P.O. Box 149104, Austin, TX 78714, or the Department's website at www.tdi.state.tx.us/auto/frvp.html. A copy may also be requested via email at TexasFRVP@tdi.state.tx.us.
