or feel free to call an AutoTec Customer Service Representative toll-free M-F, 6am to 7pm CST at 800-665-2133 in the U.S., 205-414-2700 outside the U.S.


Where can I use my AuctionACCESS card?

You can use your AuctionACCESS card at over 210 auctions in North America. Use our map to find the one closest to you!


I have an AuctionACCESS card, does that mean I’m registered at all auctions?

Your AuctionACCESS card simplifies the registration process at all participating auctions. However, since each auction operates independently they each have their own business procedures and requirements. In order to register with a new auction you plan to visit please choose one of the following three options:

  • Pre-Register with the auction by using myACCESSsm.
  • Contact the auction you wish to attend prior to the sale and provide them with your AuctionACCESS number.
  • Register with the auction on the day of the sale using your AuctionACCESS card.


My AuctionACCESS card doesn’t work, what should I do?

There are several reasons that an AuctionACCESS card might stop working. They include:

  • You are not registered at the auction at which you are trying to use the card. In this case, you will need to stop by Dealer Registration so that the auction can activate you.
  • The Dealer License or other required document for your dealership has expired since your last visit to an auction. Some auctions will temporarily deactivate a dealership under these conditions. Stop by Dealer Registration to resolve the situation.
  • Your status at the auction will not permit you to buy or sell until speaking with an auction representative in Dealer Registration. Stop by Dealer Registration to resolve the situation.
  • You’ve reported the card lost or stolen. If you find a card that you had previously reported as lost or stolen, throw it away and wait for your new card. A lost card is permanently deactivated immediately upon AutoTec’s notification of a lost or stolen card.
  • The magnetic stripe on the back of the card is dirty. An alcohol swab will clean the stripe and usually resolves this problem.
  • The magnetic stripe has been demagnetized. You will need to request a new card. You can do this in any auction’s Dealer Registration department.


Why do you require a form of photo identification?

One of the outcomes of the tragedy of September 11th has been an increased government requirement for businesses to “know their customers”. To assist our customers with this requirement, we require a valid form of photo identification to help them recognize their buyers and sellers. Using the photo as well as the identification number from the photo identification provides the auction with the information they need to stay in government compliance. It also helps protect you against possible identity theft. Valid forms of photo identification are a state or province issued driver’s license, a state or province issued “official identification” card, a U.S., Canadian or Mexican passport, or a Mexican voter registration card.


Is it safe to use this site for my personal information?

myACCESSsm uses an industry standard encryption scheme for all your information. Encryption helps protect your private information so that a third party cannot read it. Encryption is the scrambling of information for online transmissions back and forth between two points. AutoTec’s goal is to keep your information safe. When you fill out an online registration form or provide personal information, you transmit this information to AutoTec over the Internet. Accessing your AuctionACCESS dealership or representative information online also involves Internet transmissions between your computer and AutoTec. All online transmissions are encrypted. The effectiveness or level of security, for encryption is measured in terms of bits. 128-bit encryption is the industry standard encryption scheme currently in use. myACCESSsm requires a browser that can support 128-bit encryption.


I’m not comfortable providing my information over the Internet. What should I do?

You can either visit any of our subscribing auctions and register there, or contact one of our Customer Service Representatives by phone at 800-665-2133 (from the US or Canada)
or 205-414-2700.


My dealership information is all wrong. What should I do?

You can choose any one of three solutions for this problem:

  • Correct the information online by using myACCESSsm.
  • Contact our Customer Service Department by phone at 800-665-2133 (from the US or Canada)
    or 205-414-2700.
  • Request assistance at any of our subscribing customer locations.

Red Flag Rules for Auto Dealers

By Ellen Topness, eHow Contributor



Red Flag Rules for Auto Dealers thumbnail

An auto dealer must follow the Federal Trade Commission’s Red Flags Rule.

The Federal Trade Commission drafted the Red Flags Rule to protect consumers and businesses from identity theft. Auto dealers are included in the group of businesses that are required to comply with this rule. It is designed to ensure that auto dealers can verify the identity of an individual who enters into a business relationship with them.

  1. Written Plan

    • An auto dealer must have a written plan to combat identity theft. This plan should include an employee training process to ensure all employees understand the Red Flags Rule and the company’s specific ID theft prevention plan.

    Red Flags

    • The auto dealer should list all possible warning signs that suggest identity theft. For help in this area, the Federal Trade Commission’s website offers lists of possible identity theft indicators. Examples of red flags include customers who present suspicious documents or personal information when purchasing a car. In the prevention plan, the dealer should include the methods that will be used to identify these flags and the procedure to follow when one is detected.


    • All red flags and responses to them must be documented in a client’s file.The type of documentation the dealer chooses to use for this purpose belongs in the prevention plan. The Red Flags Rule also requires auto dealers to update the prevention program to include new risks to consumers and dealers as they are identified.


    • An auto dealer should have its board of directors or a senior employee approve the plan and appoint an administrator of the program. The administrator will ensure compliance to avoid FTC fines and potential claims under the state’s unfair and deceptive practices laws.

BHPH Dealer Requirements

The new legislation requires BHPH dealers, on every vehicle sold or leased, to:

following conditions:

—Printed with a heading in at least 16-point bold type that reads


with text at least 12-point type.

—Located adjacent to the Used Car Buyer’s Guide located prominently and
conspicuously on the vehicle so that it is readily readable.

—Identify all equipment included with the vehicle.

—Contain the information used to determine the reasonable market value of the
vehicle, including, but not limited to, the use of a nationally recognized pricing
guide for used vehicles.

—Contain the date the reasonable market value was determined.

—Indicate that the reasonable market value is being provided only for comparison
shopping and is not the retail sales price or the advertised price of the vehicle.

Record of Complaint Form (INV 172A) (PDF)

Information about this form

Filing a Complaint with the Department of Motor Vehicles

You should know that DMV has limited resources to review and catalog these complaints. Your information will be reviewed by Investigations and Audits and/or Licensing Operations. Not all complaints are investigated.

Use the (Record of Complaint Form (INV 172A) to register a complaint regarding a new or used vehicle dealer, a broker, dismantler, registration service, vehicle verifier, driving school or traffic violator school. Only written complaints, submitted on this form, are accepted.

DMV investigators conduct selective investigations of these licensees and their activities, based upon the department’s priorities, patterns of misconduct and the availability of personnel. Your complaint will be kept on file in case an investigation is undertaken against this party or firm. If this occurs, you may be contacted.

You should know that, even if DMV conducts an investigation, this can only result in criminal or administrative action against the licensee, and may not result in any monetary judgment or award to you or other victims.

Your only recourse to recover a financial loss, or to seek another remedy, is to consider filing a civil claim against the licensee.

Typical Complaints within the Department’s Jurisdiction:

  • Counterfeit/fraudulent/forged DMV Documents
  • Odometer Fraud
  • Dealer Did Not Transfer Registration to Buyer Within 60 Days
  • Dealer Overcharged for DMV Fees
  • Unlicensed Dealer, Dismantler, Registration Service, Driving School, etc.
  • Certain Fraudulent Misrepresentations
  • Violations of the Motor Vehicle Sales Finance Act
  • Violations of the Moscone Vehicle Leasing Act

You Should Know:

  • It is your responsibility to read and understand your vehicle sales contract before signing it.
  • The term “AS – IS” means exactly that. Inspect a potential purchase carefully, or have it checked by a mechanic.
  • Be aware there is no “cooling off” period on vehicles purchased from a dealer unless you obtain a contract cancellation option, which is available to you when buying specified used cars from a licensed dealer.
  • If you signed a contract and later decided you do not want the vehicle, you may still have to make payments, as required by the contract. You may wish to contact an attorney for assistance. Failure to pay may damage your credit. Returning the vehicle to the dealer does not cancel the contract or release you from the agreement. The dealer may have the vehicle towed elsewhere and you will be charged for towing and storage.

DMV Cannot:

  • Give legal advice or discuss a case prior to investigating a complaint.
  • Act as a go-between to settle contract terms for buyer or dealer.
  • Investigate complaints against private parties, unless the complaint is for suspected odometer mileage fraud, counterfeit/fraudulent/forged DMV documents, or they are acting as an unlicensed motor vehicle business.
  • Recover money or property for the consumer.
  • Investigate most complaints about the condition of used cars. “AS-IS” on a contract or Buyers Guide, displayed on the used car window, means you will pay all repair costs after you sign the contract, not the dealer. (Safety equipment problems are handled by the California Highway Patrol.)
  • Resolve disputes over money owed to or by another party.
  • Force a dealer to take back a vehicle after a contract is signed.
  • Investigate verbal agreements or statements, made by the dealer, about the vehicle.


You can seek remedy through the courts, which may award money or order actions to help you reclaim property. To do this, you can contact a private attorney or legal aid group. Legal aid agencies may give free legal advice or represent people who cannot afford private counsel. Legal aid groups are listed in the white pages of the local telephone directory.

You may choose to file a case in Small Claims Court, where claims are limited to $5,000. Some courts provide advisors to explain procedures and prepare claims. Check for Small Claims Court in the County Government pages of local telephone directories.

Many consumers feel it is worthwhile to contact their local Better Business Bureau to register complaints regarding area businesses. Also, many local television and radio stations offer free consumer assistance through a special telephone number or address.

Other DMV Resources:

Private party vehicle sales: problems with transfer and registration.

Contact nearest DMV Field Office. Check state government section of local telephone directory for telephone number and location.

To File a Record of Complaint:

Before filing a complaint with DMV, attempt to resolve the problem with the other party or firm.

If your attempts are unsuccessful, and you wish to submit information for our files, complete the enclosed Record of Complaint Form (INV 172A) and attach photocopies of all documents related to the complaint. Do not send original documents.

Refer to the back of the attached Record of Complaint Form for statewide office locations. Send the complaint and photocopied documents to the Investigations District Office closest to where the sale took place or dealer is located. Remember that civil or small claims actions are the means by which you may seek damages or reimbursement of any loss you may have suffered. DMV cannot assist you in this aspect of problem.

See web site “Consumer Information” for additional information that will assist consumers who are planning to purchase or have purchased a vehicle.

Back to Main forms page

be careful how you collect buyer data

The California driver’s license looks very similar to a plastic credit card with a magnetic “stripe” on the back. The “stripe” holds information which can be read by special scanners. Currently the information on the stripe is the same as the front of the license. It can be used by law enforcement officers to print traffic tickets and by retailers to record information when a customer pays by check. Some privacy advocates are concerned that the magnetic stripe makes it easier for merchants to establish computerized data banks about their customers, and thereby poses a threat to personal privacy.

In California, Civil Code 1798.90.1 prohibits bars, car dealers and others from collecting personal information by swiping the magnetic stripe for purposes other than verifying age or the authenticity of the driver’s license, or preventing fraud.
