car title Oklahoma

It's hard to keep track of all our important pieces of information and ID. Your car title is one of those items you may have lost track of over the years, and suddenly now that you're ready to transfer ownership of your vehicle or sell it, you're going to need that title. So what do you do if you’ve either lost your car title or had it stolen? That’s when it’s time to pay a visit to your local DMV.

If you live in the state of Oregon, applying for a duplicate car title is a relatively simple process that you will do through the Oregon Driver and Motor Vehicle Services Division (DMV). This is meant for residents of the state as a way to replace a lost, mutilated, destroyed, or stolen title. You can go about this process in person or by mail, whichever is the most convenient for you. Here’s a look at the steps involved.

In person

  • Applying in person is simple just begin by filling out the Application for Replacement Title (Form 735-515). Please be aware that all of the owners of the vehicle will need to sign this form.

It ranges from $90 for a motor with a gross vehicle weight of more than 26,000 lbs or a trailer loaded with more than 8,000 lbs, to $77 for all other types of vehicles. Payment can be made in the form of a money order or check payable to the "Oregon DMV".

  • Your information plus the fee can be taken to your local DMV office.
