How to Request a Duplicate Title in Rhode Island

Your vehicle’s title is quite an important piece of paper but it’s unfortunately that…

…a piece of paper.

This means it’s prone to be lost, damaged, or even stolen! When this happens, you’ll want to get it replaced as soon as you can.

The vehicle’s title shows proof of ownership and is required to complete a lot of tasks with the DMV. Below, you’ll learn the steps required to get your Rhode Island duplicate title in a hassle-free manner.

How to Process a Rhode Island Duplicate Title Application

To begin:

You need to visit the Pawtucket DMV to process a duplicate title request at 600 New London Ave, Cranston, RI 02920 as this is the only DMV office that’ll process the request.

You will then do the following when you get there:

  1. Show your proofs:
    1. Identification
    2. Residency
    3. Lien release (if applicable)
  2. File an Application for Title (Form TR-2/TR-9)
  3. Get the form notarized
  4. Pay the $51.50 duplicate title fee

And like that, you’re done.

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 asap to avoid any issues – and so you can keep showing ownership of the vehicle.
