Dealing with paperwork and the DMV can be challenging and stressful, especially if you’re trying to replace important documents, such as your title.
Thankfully, the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles makes it quick and easy to apply for a duplicate title, either in person or through the mail. Check out our guide to getting through the process below:
If you’re planning on submitting your application in person, there are a few things you’ll need to bring with you to your local County Clerk of Courts Title Office/a>. You’ll need to bring a form of identification, a completed Application for Certificate of Title to a Motor Vehicle (form BMV 3774), and payment for any title fees. You’ll also need a lien holder notation if you currently have or had a lien on your vehicle in the past.
If you’re sending your application through the mail, you’ll have to send all the completed documents to the County Clerk of Courts Title Office where the original title was issued from. If you can’t remember which office issued your original title, it was probably the one in the county where you were living when you purchased the vehicle. Make sure you include the current address where you want your new title to be sent, the signature of the vehicle’s owner, and valid notarization.
If you have any additional questions, you can contact them at (614)-752-7671 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
