How to Replace a Lost or Stolen Car Title in Vermont

car title Vermont

You've probably never given your car title much thought before. Really, unless you are transferring ownership of your vehicle, or selling it, the title doesn't come into play. That's exactly why it's so easy for it to go missing, get damaged, or even get stolen. Thankfully there is no need to stress about it, as you can obtain a duplicate car title with relative ease.

In the state of Vermont you will be applying for a duplicate title through the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Keep in mind if your vehicle is 15 years old or newer, you will be required by law to have a title. There are a few exceptions to this rule, which the DMV can fill you in on. Applying for a duplicate title can be done in person, by mail, or online. Here’s a look at the process.

  • Begin by calling your local DMV branch office to see if they in fact handle duplicate car titles. Not all of them do.

  • You will need to fill out the Duplicate Title Application (Form TA-VT-04).
    Note: All owners of the vehicle must sign the application.

  • Bring photo ID with you when you drop off the application.

  • There is a fee of $33 for the duplicate car title.

By mail

  • Fill out the Duplicate Title Application, and have all owners sign the form.
    Note: You'll need to include your current odometer reading, the year and make of your car, and the ID number.

  • Be sure to include the $33 fee.

  • Mail the information to the main office for the DMV in Montpelier.

120 State St
Montpelier, VT 05603

Online

  • Follow the steps on the DMV Express Portal to apply online.

  • There are also DMV kiosks that you can visit and fill out the information.

You can find more information about replacing a lost or stolen car title in Vermont by visiting the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles site.
