If your vehicle is registered in Maryland and your title has been altered, lost, mutilated, or destroyed, you’re going to need to apply for a new one.
Here’s your quick resource guide to applying for your duplicate certificate of title in Maryland:
There are a few options of where you can submit your Application for Duplicate Certificate of Title. You can submit a form online, at the designated kiosks in all full service and express MVA buildings, at any licensed title and tag service, or at any of the MVA’s full service offices.
Regardless of where you plan on submitting your application, make sure it is thoroughly completed. You won’t be able to get your new title if the form is missing information.
Also, be aware that there is a $20.00 fee in order to get your certificate of title.
If you submitted an application for a new title and never received one in the mail, no sweat! Simply fill out a Certificate of Non-Receipt of Original/Duplicate Title (form VR-091) and mail it to the address below:
MVA Title File Unit
6601 Ritchie Highway, NE
Glen Burnie, MD 21062
They’ll issue you a new title, free of charge, as long as you make your request within 90 days.
If you have your original title, but the information on it is incorrect, you can request for a corrected title. You may have to fill out the Application for Corrected Title Due to a Name Change or provide other paperwork to prove that the information on your title is incorrect.
