How to Replace a Lost Vehicle Title in Maine
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. A vehicle is required to have a title in Maine if it is 15 years old or newer.
WHAT YOU NEED WHEN APPLYING FOR A DUPLICATE/REPLACEMENT TITLE
- Complete the Application for a Duplicate Title.
- Once completed it must be signed by the owner (if there are no liens).
- If your original title is damaged or mutilated, you must return the original title when applying for a replacement.
- If your title shows a lienholder, you must include a completed and notarized Lien Release form with your application.
Along with your application form and the other materials, you must submit the required title fee. Checks and money orders should be payable to the Secretary of State. You may apply for speed processing of the application by submitting an additional fee of $10.
