Replace Lost California Vehicle Title
Now, you can replace your lost California vehicle title fast and easy without leaving your home or office. Cartagz.com makes it simple by providing you with the online forms and easy instructions.
The next page will provide instructions along with the required DMV form(s).
You will need to provide the following items by fax or e-mail:
- Copy of your most recent vehicle registration card
- Copy of your driver’s license (must be a registered owner)
- A completed Application for Duplicate Title (DMV REG227)
- A completed Notice of Change of Address (DMV14) if you have moved since your last registration renewal
These items may be faxed to 916-258-0299. Scanned or photo images may be sent by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On the same business day, you will receive a confirmation e-mail containing a link to our secured payment center. Once your payment and shipping information have been submitted, you will be asked to send the original, signed application form(s) to Cartagz.
You’re all done! After Cartagz receives your original items, you will receive your new duplicate vehicle title directly from the DMV within 2-3 weeks.
IMPORTANT: If you had a lien holder (auto loan) on your title before it was lost, it must be removed from DMV records before a duplicate title can be issued to you. If this is the case, Cartagz will provide you with the required form(s) and instructions on how to obtain the required lien release.
PLEASE NOTE: If annual registration fees are due within 75 days of your application for duplicate title, the DMV will require registration fees to be paid during this process. If this is the case, you will be notified during check-out of any outstanding or upcoming renewal fees.
