When a title has been lost, destroyed, or mutilated, you can obtain a duplicate title from the Motor Vehicle Office in any county. To obtain a duplicate title, you must submit a completed Application for Duplicate Certificate of Title (PDF). All person(s) whose name(s) appear on the face of the title must sign the completed application. The exception to this is a title that is held by husband and wife, in which case either, acting as agent for the other, may sign the application. All signatures must be notarized. The fee for a duplicate Certificate of Title is $14.
