How do I replace a lost title or a damaged car title in OH? Ohio

Your car title is one of the most important documents you have, so you should replace it immediately after you notice it's damaged or missing. Here's how to do so.

OH Duplicate Title Process

Download and complete form BMV-3774 (Application for Certificate of Title to a Motor Vehicle), available through the BMV site. Be sure to pay a special attention to the duplicate title section.

Take the form to any branch office that handles vehicle titles, along with acceptable identification (such as a driver's license or Ohio ID card) and a document that contains the vehicle identification number (such as your car registration). No bill of sale is required.

Only the lienholder or the car owner can apply for a duplicate title, which costs $15. Should a lost title reappear have you've received your duplicate title, cancel the original title at the title office.
