Out of State Credit Union waiting on Title for Model 3 purchased in FL - received registration already - please assist

My tesla model 3 was purchased at the end of December in Florida. My Credit Union that handled the financing is based in NC. I finally got my registration in Feb after delays with the DMV. My credit union still does not any title documentation. How do they get this, I believe FL is an electronic title state. I tried looking under my DMV webpage to see if I could print one but it would not allow me since there is a Lien on the vehicle. Can someone please assist with how to proceed, hopefully someone else has been in this situation.

Check with Tesla. I had the same issue with my credit union. My notice was "we have not received your title with us as the lienholder". When I called them for clarification if the issue was receiving the title at all, or if the title was incorrect, they said they hadn't received it at all - this was 4 months after my purchase. They asked what kind of car it was and when I said Tesla, they said Tesla is notoriously slow on title transfer. The received it shortly after that.

@scherer326: We took delivery of a Model 3 in FL on Dec 18 and just received the title a few days ago.
