Lost or Stolen Titles
If the original title is lost, stolen or destroyed, you may obtain a Duplicate Certificate of Title. The duplicate title can only be applied for by the owner(s) or lien holder of the vehicle. If, after the duplicate has been issued, the original is found, that original must be returned to our office for cancellation.
The owner may complete the application for duplicate title if there is no lien or the lien has been canceled. If there is a lien on the vehicle, the lien holder must apply for the duplicate title.
The title number is required in order to process a duplicate title. If you do not know the title number you will need the VIN number and the date of purchase. The VIN number and the date of purchase can be found on your registration.
Please be assured the Auto Title Division will make every attempt to help you even if you have none of the above information.
Notarization services are available from the Clerk of Courts Auto Title Division for all titles and related forms.
