How to Replace a Lost or Stolen Car Title in Louisiana

car title louisiana

Likely your car title isn't something you think about or are concerned about on a day to day basis that is until it becomes lost or stolen. Suddenly this small piece of paper becomes quite important. Your car title is your proof that you own the car. It means you have paid for it and you are the registered owner. Not only that but if you have plans on selling your car you will need to have the title to do so. It is always recommended that you keep your car title somewhere safe and secure and not in your vehicle. Even with taking the proper measures things can still happen.

If you live in the state of Louisiana and have lost your title, or had it stolen there are steps you can take in order to have a duplicate title made. This can be done through the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV). Keep in mind that this process must be done in person. Here are the steps you will need to take.

  • First fill out the Vehicle Application (Form DPSMV 1799.

  • Include a copy of your Louisiana registration certificate.

  • Be sure to have the appropriate fees with you, which are $68.50 as well as an $8 handling charge.

As far as who can request a duplicate title, here's a list of eligible parties:

  • A bankruptcy trustee
  • The vehicle's last registered owner
  • The lienholder (it must be on record)
  • A curator for the last registered owner
  • A power of attorney for the last registered owner
  • A corporation or representative that has interest in the vehicle

You can find more information about replacing a lost or stolen car title in Louisiana by visiting Louisiana's Office of Motor Vehicles.
