How to Replace a Lost Vehicle Title in North Carolina

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 duplicate before they can sell their vehicle.


  1. Complete the Application for Duplicate Title form, making sure to indicate on the form that you are applying for a duplicate title.
  2. Once completed, you must have the application form properly notarized.
  3. If your original title is damaged or mutilated, you must return the original title when applying for a replacement.
  4. If a lien is involved, the holder has to complete the bottom half of the form and get it notarized.


Along with your application form and the other materials, you must submit a $15 duplicate title fee in the form of cash, money order or check.


You can submit the application and fees for a duplicate title at your local DMV office.


Reviews of How to Replace a Lost Vehicle Title in North Carolina

This website isn't run by or affiliated with the DMV or the state. Not official. Apparently just some people who bought the URL and don't bother so much keeping links to the official DMV website updated. Look at the top: " is a privately owned website that is not affiliated with any government agencies."

This link has been dysfunctional for over a year. I want a job where I can avoid my responsibilities with no accountability and an indexed pension.

This site is useless. It's so bad with non working links and half information, that when I called the DMV office they told me even THEY don't use it!!

I bought a boat trailer in 1998. The title has been lost. How do I get a new license plate and registration?

This site is absoloutley useless and you can't call anybody. This is our state govenrment at work using your tax dollars. guess I'll go wait for 2 hours in the DMV line
