Replacement Certificate of Title

A duplicate title is obtained when the original title has been lost, stolen, mutilated, destroyed, or becomes illegible.  

A duplicate title may be purchased by following the link below:

If you are unable to establish ownership through any one of the available BMV title application processes, 
you must obtain a court order (Verified Petition to Issue Replacement Certificate of Title).  Once you have received the court order, you may apply for a certificate of title through the BMV.
