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.
By Mail or in Person
You must complete an application for a replacement title (form #VT-004) and submit it to this Department with the appropriate fee. If the last issued title had a lien listed, you will also need proof the lien has been released.
