How to Replace a Lost or Stolen Car Title in Wyoming

car title wyoming

Are you familiar with what a car title is? It is the proof that you are the owner of your vehicle. So why is this so important? Well if you have any plans of selling your car in the future, transferring ownership, or even using it as collateral, then you are going to need to show that car title. So what happens if your car title has gone missing, or perhaps stolen? While this may seem quite stressful the good news is that you can obtain a duplicate car title with relative ease.

In the state of Wyoming motorists can obtain this duplicate title through the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT). Those who have had their title destroyed, lost, stolen, or destroyed can obtain a duplicate. You can apply in person or by mail.

Here are the steps involved in the process:

In person

  • Visit your nearest WY DOT office and be sure it deals with titling.

  • You will need to fill out the Duplicate Certificate of Title Application & Affidavit (Form 202-022). This form will need to be signed by all the owners of the vehicle, and notarized.

  • You will need to have your vehicle model, make, year, and VIN as well as your registration certificate with you. Photo ID will also be required.

  • There is a fee of $15 for the duplicate title.

By mail

  • Follow the same steps from above by filling out the form and having it signed, and notarized. Be sure to include copies of the information requested.

  • Enclose the payment of $15.

  • Send the information to your local WY county clerk. The state of Wyoming deals with duplicate titles on a county-by-county basis rather than state-wide.

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