The lien amount refers to the amount of money owed on the lien, while the lien date is the date when the lien was established. These two pieces of information are necessary to ensure that the lien is properly released and the title is clear of any encumbrances. The other options, VIN (vehicle identification number) and name on the title, are not specifically required for a lien release request in Arizona.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What is the purpose of noting a payment promise? 

    • A.

      So as not to be marked down by QA.

    • B.

      To ensure that collections will not contact the customer for the expected payment.

    • C.

      To ensure that the customer will not be assessed of a late fee.

    • D.

      All of the above

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. To ensure that collections will not contact the customer for the expected payment.
    Explanation
    Noting a payment promise is done to ensure that collections will not contact the customer for the expected payment. This means that once a payment promise is noted, the collections department will not reach out to the customer regarding the payment, as it has been acknowledged and recorded. This helps in maintaining good customer relations and avoids any unnecessary communication or inconvenience for the customer.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    TRUE/FALSE: We can send a lien release to a paid-in-full account even if the caller is not verified.

    • D.

      False. Only the account holder can request for a lien release.

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. True, provided that no information will be given out.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is true, provided that no information will be given out. This means that even if the caller is not verified, a lien release can still be sent to a paid-in-full account. However, it is important to note that no additional information should be provided to the caller in order to maintain security and privacy.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    What is the difference between suspending Direct Pay and delaying Direct Pay? 

    • A.

      There is no difference.

    • B.

      Suspending means canceling DP and the customer will enroll again in the future. Delaying is temporarily stopping the drafting and the customer can call back to unsuspend it.

    • C.

      Suspending means temporarily stopping DP from drafting and delaying means no changes will be done except a note to draft a few days after the customer's scheduled due date.

    • D.

      It is not possible for us to do either of the two.

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Suspending means temporarily stopping DP from drafting and delaying means no changes will be done except a note to draft a few days after the customer's scheduled due date.
    Explanation
    Suspending Direct Pay means temporarily stopping the drafting process, while delaying Direct Pay means no changes will be made except for a note to draft a few days after the customer's scheduled due date. In other words, suspending involves a temporary halt, while delaying involves a slight adjustment in the timing of the draft.

    • D.

      D. Customer needs to wait for 30 days before getting the title.

    • E.

      Both B and C

    Correct Answer
    E. Both B and C
    Explanation
    The correct answer is both B and C. This is because option B states that there is a 10 business day hold for non-certified funds before processing the title, while option C states that if the customer sends certified funds, there will be no hold time. Both options B and C also mention that processing the title takes 2-3 days, followed by 3-5 days of mailing time.

    If a customer calls in and wants to cancel his insurance. What do you do?

    • A.

      Refer the customer to Van Wagenen.

    • D.

      Refer the customer to Dealer Service Center.

    Correct Answer
    B. Refer the customer to the originating dealership.
    Explanation
    When a customer wants to cancel their insurance, it is best to refer them back to the originating dealership. This is because the dealership is responsible for handling the insurance policies and can assist the customer with the cancellation process. The dealership will have the necessary information and resources to properly handle the customer's request and ensure a smooth cancellation experience. Referring the customer to Van Wagenen, the insurance company, or the Dealer Service Center may not be the most appropriate option as they may not have the necessary authority or knowledge to handle the cancellation effectively.
