Replace a title certificate

When applying for a replacement title at a DMV office, you will NOT be issued the replacement title while there.  All title certificates are printed in a secure facility in Albany and are mailed to the owner.  


Express mail

We can send you your replacement title by express mail. This will cost extra, and you will need to sign for the delivery.  Express mail is not available between Friday at 8:30 pm and Sunday at 8:30 pm. Sending an application express mail will not decrease the time it takes to review the application or issue the replacement title.
