Find out how to replace a lost vehicle title in Missouri
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 Missouri Title and License (DOR-108) form, making sure to indicate on the form that you are applying for a duplicate title.
- Once completed, you must have the application form properly notarized.
- 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 (DOR-4809) with your application. The form may be requested online, or at your local contract office.
Along with your application form and the other materials, you must submit an $8.50 duplicate title fee, plus a processing fee of $2.50. Checks and money orders should be payable to the Missouri Department of Revenue. Personal checks must include your name, address, date of birth, and driver license number.
