Replacement Title

How to Obtain a Replacement Title

If any liens were shown on the original title:

  • For each lien on the original title, submit a lien release on the lien holder’s letterhead, including make, model, year, vessel length (Boat/Vessel), Vehicle/Vessel identification number, owner's name, and signature of the lienholder, or submit "Title Change - Release Lien" (form VT-008).
  • If liens are still in effect, only the lienholder may apply for a replacement and MUST sign this application.


Ordering a replacement title online is fast, easy, and secure. You can obtain a replacement title online only if the last issued title had no liens listed. The new title will be mailed to you.
