How do I get a Replacement Title?
Replacement titles must be obtained from the County where it was issued.

All owners on the face of the title must sign for a replacement title, even if there is OR between the names.

If you just made an error on your title and you need a replacement, you can surrender your title, complete an Application for Replacement Title, pay $25, and get a title the same day.

If the title to your vehicle was altered, destroyed, lost, or stolen you may obtain a replacement for $25.00. You need to complete an Application for Replacement Title, pay $25, and after 5 days your title will be printed. If the scheduled print day falls on a weekend or holiday, your title will be printed on the next working day. You can indicate on the application if you would like the replacement title mailed to you or if you would like to come back and pick it up. The 5 day waiting period will NOT start until we receive the application for replacement title and the $25 payment.

All of the vehicle information required on this form can be found on your vehicle registration. All owners on the face of the title must sign for a replacement title even if there is an OR between the names.

If you have a lien on the vehicle, the lienholder may have the title. If you had a lien originally and it was paid off, please call the Treasurer’s office to see if the lien was released on our system. If not, you will need a notarized lien release from the lienholder on their letterhead.

Applications should be mailed to:
