Minnesota Duplicate Title: How To Get One
Has something happened to your vehicle’s title? Did it become lost, damaged, or stolen? If so, you’ll want to complete the Minnesota duplicate title process!
There’s no telling what can happen to your title during ownership.
You’ll want to get the title in order if you ever plan to transfer ownership. This is your legal document showing you have ownership of the vehicle. Without it, you can’t sell it, donate it, or complete your vehicle registration or renewals – so make sure it’s safe!
How to Replace or Get a Duplicate Minnesota Title
You can replace your title in-person at a local Minnesota Division of Motor Vehicles office/location. Or, process the same paperwork and submit it by mail.
You’ll need to file the Application for Duplicate Title, Registration, Cab or Lien Card (PS2067A).
Then, meet these requirements:
- Be either the vehicle owner, legal owner, representative
- Have a signed Power of Attorney
You will pay a $7.25 title fee and $10 filing fee when you file this document to get your duplicate Minnesota vehicle title.
Other items you may need:
- Driver’s license or ID card
- License plate number
- Vehicle’s VIN, make, model, and year
- Vehicle’s registration proof of ownership
- Any lien details and power of attorney (if applicable)
While these items aren’t entirely necessary, you may want to have them on-hand in case you need to process other items at the DMV. These documents also prove handy if you’re making corrections.
Replacing a title in-person requires you to:
- Locate your local MN DMV
- Show proof of ID
- Show proof of vehicle ownership
- Submit your form
- Pay the application and filing fee
Your Minnesota title replacement request is processed on location though it may take until the following day to get it. Make sure your license information is correct so they don’t accidentally send your forms to a different address!
Replacing/Duplicates by Mail
Rather not go to the DMV and, instead, do the process by mail?
- Complete the paper work (listed above)
- Include the damaged title (if replacing)
- Include a check or money order for fees
These documents go to:
Driver and Vehicle Services
Town Square Building
445 Minnesota St Suite 187
St Paul, MN 55101
Your new title should arrive by mail in about a week or two. Again, make sure they have the right information on file when you’re submitting this information.
The title replacement process doesn’t take long (as you can see). This is something you don’t want to delay as you never know when you may need to show your title. Try to get your duplicate as soon as you can to avoid any issues – and so you can keep showing ownership of the vehicle.
