What If You Lost Your Title?
If you’ve lost your title, it’s not the end of the world thankfully. While it can be a frustrating process that may change from county-to-county and state-to-state, it is overall a simple process. Just be aware you will be dealing with the WYDOT, so don’t expect anything to be quick.
The first thing you’ll need to do to get a duplicate title in Wyoming is to find your nearest WYDOT office and call to make sure they handle titling. After that, fill out the Duplicate Certificate of Title Application & Affidavit (Form 202-022) and have it signed by all the owners of the vehicle. It will also need to be notarized.
Take a trip to your nearly WYDOT office that handles titling with your filled out application and bring the following:
- Photo identification
- The make, model, year, and VIN of your vehicle
- The signed and notarized Duplicate Certificate of Title Application & Affidavit (202-022)
- $15 for the duplicate title fee
After you give all of the paperwork to clerk and pay your fees, you can expect your duplicate title in the mail within the next few weeks. There is never a definite answer to how long it may take. The process of getting your car title in Wyoming, while long, isn’t difficult as long as you know what you’re doing.
