What are the fees to replace a lost title?

Duplicate Titles and Fees

Each state charges a different duplicate title fee for replacing a lost title. The process is easy, usually requiring completing a duplicate title application, providing proper identification, and paying the required fee with cash, check, or credit card. Some states require applying in person only. Others also allow the option of applying by mail.  

If you sell your vehicle, you will need a car title. Without it, you'll delay the title transfer process and, possibly, lose a prospective buyer. 

Contact your local DMV for the lost title requirements in your state.
