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.

WHAT YOU NEED WHEN APPLYING FOR A DUPLICATE TITLE

  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.

FEES

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.

SUBMITTING THE APPLICATION

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