How to Replace a Lost Vehicle Title in West Virginia

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

  1. Complete the Affidavit of Duplicate Title for a Vehicle or Watercraft (DMV-4-TR) form, mentioning the reason for requesting the duplicate.
  2. Provide basic information about yourself and your vehicle.
  3. Lien holder information must be provided, even if the lien has been paid off.
  4. You will also need a copy of your driver's licence.

FEES

Along with your affidavit and the other materials, you must submit a $10 duplicate title fee.

SUBMITTING THE APPLICATION

You can submit the application and fees for a duplicate title at your DMV Regional Office, or mail the package to:
Department of Transportation
Division of Motor Vehicles
Building 3, Capitol Complex
Charleston, WV 25317
