Apply for a Duplicate Title
Duplicate titles are issued when the original title for a vehicle is lost, stolen or destroyed. Once a duplicate title is produced, the original title is no longer valid. Only the current owner, lienholder or a New Hampshire licensed dealer of a vehicle may request a duplicate title for that vehicle.
To apply for a duplicate title for a vehicle, the current owner must provide the following:
- An Application for Duplicate Certificate of Title.
- Check or Money Order for the duplicate title fee of $25.00.
- A Lien Release if applicable.
Applications may be dropped off at most of our DMV offices, or you may mail it to:
NH Dept. of Safety
DMV - Title
23 Hazen Drive
Concord NH 03305
Once the application is received and verified, a duplicate title will be produced and mailed to the vehicle's owner within five (5) to ten (10) calendar days.
A duplicate title may be mailed to a New Hampshire licensed dealer if the owner so indicates by signing the "Authorization for Mailing" (line 22) on the Duplicate Title Application.
Joint Ownership: If two people are listed as owners on a title, both owners must sign the application for a duplicate. The duplicate title will be mailed to the first listed owner.
Lien Release Required: If a lien was recorded on the vehicle when purchased, the owner must provide a Release of Lien signed by the lienholder with the application for a duplicate title.
