Replace Car Title
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Has something happened to your vehicle’s title? Did it become lost, damaged, or stolen? If so, you’ll want to complete the Mississippi duplicate title process!

There’s no telling what can happen to your title during ownership.

If you ever plan to transfer ownership, you’ll want to get the title in order. This is your legal document showing you have ownership of the vehicle. Without it, you can’t sell, donate, or complete your vehicle registration or renewals – so make sure it’s safe!

How to Get a Duplicate Mississippi Title?

Visit a local Mississippi Department of Revenue (DOR) office/location.

You must file the Application for Replacement Certificate of Title (Form 78-006) and pay a $9 fee to receive your duplicate Mississippi title.

Got a lien on the title? Have the lienholder file a Form 78-006, letting you request the duplicate title. You may also need a power of attorney if you’re not the owner when requesting.

Replacing a title in person requires you to:

  1. Locate your local MS DMV
  2. Show proof of ID
  3. Show proof of vehicle ownership
  4. Submit your form
  5. Pay the application fee

Your Mississippi title replacement request is processed on location, though it takes up to 4 weeks before your duplicate title is sent by mail. Make sure your license information is correct so they don’t accidentally send your forms to a different address!

You may also include the form and fees, then send your request to:

Department of Revenue

Title Bureau

P.O. Box 1383

Jackson, MS 39201

Fast Track Title (Mississippi)

To get a new title, you must complete Form 78-026.

  • You can get this form at your local tax collector’s office. Call the Department of Revenue’s Print Shop at 601-923-7880 if you need these forms. For regular titles, use the normal paperwork.
  • All paperwork must be completed and attached, or it will not be accepted.
  • When submitting a Fast-Track request, send it to the right address so it can be processed quickly. Fast-Track costs $30 and other fees for getting a title.

The title replacement process doesn’t take long (as you can see).

You don’t want to delay this as you never know when you may need to show your title. Try to get your duplicate asap to avoid any issues so you can keep showing ownership of the vehicle.
