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.
WHAT YOU NEED WHEN APPLYING FOR A DUPLICATE/REPLACEMENT TITLE
- Complete the application for a Kentucky replacement title form, making sure to indicate on the form that you are applying for a duplicate title.
- You need to show your driver's license for photo identification.
- You also need to provide your vehicle licence plate number or title number.
- If your original title is damaged or mutilated, you must return the original title when applying for a replacement.
Along with your application form and the other materials, you must submit a $4 duplicate title fee, plus a notary fee as relevant. Checks and money orders should be payable to the Kentucky Transportation cabinet's Division of Motor Vehicle Licensing.
