How to Replace a Lost Vehicle Title in Florida

You may apply for a duplicate vehicle title if your original title is lost, stolen, or damaged. A vehicle with a missing title cannot be bought or sold, so owners must apply for and obtain a replacement before they can sell their vehicle.


  1. Complete the duplicate title form, making sure to indicate on the form that you are applying for a duplicate title.
  2. If your original title is damaged or mutilated, you must return the original title when applying for a replacement.
  3. If your title shows a lienholder, you must include proof that the lien has been paid.


Along with your application form and the other materials, you need to pay $75.25 for an electronic copy or $77.75 for a paper copy of the duplicate title fee. Checks and money orders should be payable to the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles. Personal checks must include your name, address, date of birth, and driver license number.


You can submit the application and fees for a duplicate title at your local county tax collector's office. You will receive the title in the mail. Florida's DMV also offers expedited service. For an extra $7, they will hand you a replacement title on the spot.


Reviews of How to Replace a Lost Vehicle Title in Florida

Does anyone know specific FL locations that off same day duplicate title service?

can we mail in the paperwork for a duplicate title for our auto

GOUGING - if anything, the 'fee' should be 10 or 20 dollars, at most!

Just called 850 617-2000 Average wait time is 95 minutes. I hope it's a joke!!

This is incorrect! I just paid $78.25 + 7.50 (for same day). This information is old!!

I was just there too and it was going to be $87.75 for same day!!!!

It's Ok. with amount of money if you really lost your vehicle title. It's so ridiculous for me as a lady from the Florida Highway Safety Motor Vehicle Dep told me sending $87.75 to get duplicate title due to lost the title and because she ready sent me twice the vehicle paper title I completely get shock because I 've never received any paper vehicle title from them. I 've spent over two months, over ten times, every time is over 160 min to contact FHSMV to ask about my matter that I used online to get my E title be a paper tittle . the FHSMV customer agents told me just wait, fill in form 82101,wait, and wait. Finally today, she, Customer service Manager told me that my title is lost and I have to pay $ to get duplicated vehicle title. It is awful and I do not know that I can trust to the FHSMV anymore for E Vehicle Title or some else!!!!
