Obtaining a Duplicate Title

Lost your New Jersey car title? You can apply for a duplicate title by mail or in person at any MVC office.

1: Get Started with Online Application Assistance

Application assistance services can simplify the process for many DMV related services for a fee, including: renewing your license, applying for a license, registering a vehicle, replacing your license, changing your address and more. Other benefits include an ongoing monthly newsletter and a quarterly magazine covering important updates that affect drivers, important safety tips, trends, legislative updates and ways to save money on vehicle-related services.

2: By mail

Some drivers prefer to handle the renewal process by mail, rather than taking advantage of assistance services, visiting the DMV in person, or via available online services. Service by mail is available with limitations. Read below for additional details or visit your local DMV.

3: Via a DMV office

If your specific needs require an in-person visit, most, if not all, driver license services can be handled at your local DMV office. Varying DMV offices sometimes supply different types of services so you will need to check before your visit to make sure the DMV closest to you provides the service you require. In addition, you can call to see if your DMV allows you to make a personal appointment.




If your title is lost or stolen in New Jersey, you will need to complete and sign an application for a duplicate title. You will be required to pay a duplicate fee of $60 and present certain proofs of identification and ownership. For more information regarding your motor vehicle tags and titles, visit http://www.state.nj.us/mvc/Vehicle/Titles.htm.
