How to Get Your Car Title in Connecticut

If you’ve lost your title, just finished paying off your lease, or need a replacement car title for any reason, the Constitution State makes it simple to request a title.

We’ve created this guide to ease the process of retrieving your title in CT, so read on for the steps you need to take to request a duplicate title in Connecticut.

1. Fill out the Application for Replacement Certificate of Title

2. The fastest route is to head into the nearest DMV location with your signed paperwork and a check or money order for $25 (fee as of 02/09/17), otherwise you can mail in your form to the address below with a check or money order, although it can take up to 90 days for processing through mail:

State of Connecticut

Department of Motor Vehicles

Attn: Title Unit

60 State Street

Wethersfield, CT 06161

If you are transferring your title from your lienholder (you’ve finished paying off your loan) you need to send in the form from step 1, your check for duplicate title, and a signed lien release from your lienholder.

Voila! You’ve taken the biggest step in selling your car the easy way. All that’s left to do is give us a call, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Remember: if you’re currently still paying off your vehicle, cannot purchase it until it is paid off in full, and the title is in your name.
