How to Get Your Title in Tennessee
March 17, 2017 Written by
If you’ve satisfied a lien on a vehicle you’ve been driving, you should be the proud owner of the vehicle’s title. But, if your title has been damaged, stolen, or lost, you’ll need to apply for a duplicate title in the state of Tennessee. Here’s how to get that process started: Whether you’re applying in person or through the mail, you’ll need to fill out a Tennessee Department of Revenue Vehicle Services Division Duplicate Title form. Make sure to fill it out completely, they can’t process your request properly if you don’t. You’ll need to have proof that any and all liens on the vehicle have been satisfied. If there are still outstanding liens, the duplicate title will be mailed to the current lienholder. There is an $11.00 title fee, which can only be paid via check. There may also be additional fees, depending on your county. If you’re applying in person, you’ll need to bring an acceptable form of identification with you to your local County Clerk’s Office.
