Vehicle Registration Online Services Guide

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.


  1. Complete the Form TC-123, Duplicate Title Application signed by the owner/s.
  2. If your original title is damaged or mutilated, you must return the original title when applying for a replacement.
  3. If your title shows a lien holder, you must receive permission from the lien holder before getting a replacement title.


Along with your application form and the other materials, you must submit a $6 duplicate title fee.


You can submit the application and fees for a duplicate title at your local Utah Motor Vehicles office or mail the package to:

Utah State Tax Commission
Motor Vehicle Division
210 North 1950 West
Salt Lake City, UT 84134    

Use zip code 84116 when using express service like FedEx, USP, etc.

I bought a trailer years ago

I bought a trailer years ago but because of it's size I did not have to license it. I never transferred the title. We moved and during the move seemed to have lost the title. I do not have any info on the previous owners. How do I replace the title?

I had a lein holder on a car

I had a lein holder on a car I purchased in 2005. My lein holder was bought out by a different bank and now neither banks have any information regarding my vehicle. I can not register it nor can I sell, etc without a duplicate title. I can not get a duplicate or lost title without the information or approval of my "lein holder" I have had my VIN ran through several companies and it is not connected to any other vehicle or mine. I have gone to lawyers and am in a catch 22 loop hole. Please assist me in obtaining a lost title!
