Accessing e-MV11

Wisconsin dealerships can access state Internet applications by using the Web Access Management System (WAMS) - the same means of identification for all state Web applications.

Step 1: Sign-on process

Log on to the State of Wisconsin self-registration site. Set up a user ID for each person who will need access. Please note that obtaining a user ID is a two-step process and you must complete BOTH steps within 4 days of requesting the account or you will need to begin the self-registration process over again. 

Step 2: 

Part 1 of 2: Requesting a user ID and password 

Part one: submit your contact and account information. You will be sent a confirmation email, immediately, containing a Web link to the account activation page.

You must have an accessible, valid, and unique email address to complete the self-registration process. You will need your user ID and password to complete step 3.

Self-registration allows you to create your personal Wisconsin Login account.  This allows the user to conduct secure business transactions with the State of Wisconsin over the Internet. The account belongs to you and, therefore, requires your personal information.
