What is a mySEL account?

Your mySEL account provides you with access to a variety of benefits, including access to secure documents and the product configuration application (online MOT). We also use selections made during the registration process to know what product information you are interested in receiving via email. In the future, we will be adding additional functionality for personalization and customization, all with the goal of improving the customer experience of our website.

What is two factor authentication?

This is an optional feature for your mySEL account using Google Authenticator. When you enable 2-Step Verification (also known as two-factor authentication), you add an extra layer of security to your account. You sign in with something you know (your password) and something you have (a code sent to your phone). 

Why is my account inactive and how do I reactivate it?

Accounts that have not been used for more than 18 months are inactivated. You can reactivate your account by logging in and updating your account profile. Once updated, our system will send you an email with a six-digit PIN. After entering this PIN, your email address will be confirmed and you will be able to log in again.
