Need My Title

Where is my title?

Go to the Motor Vehicle Check and enter your title number or vehicle identification number.

If your title says it is electronic, it means it has never been printed. If there is a lien, only the lienholder can request a title be printed until the lien is satisfied. If there is no lien, you may pay to print the title and request us to mail it to you.  Just go to and pay with a credit or debit card.  Your title should be received within 7 to 10 business days.

If you recently ordered the title to be printed on-line and have not received it, check the print date. If the print date is more than 20 days old, but not more than six months, you can apply for a free replacement title.  Complete the form for a free title and either take it ormail it to your local tax collector's office in Florida. 

If you are out of state, you can mail it to any Florida tax collector's office.

If you requested your title by mail at any Florida tax collector's office and have not received the title, you must contact that tax collector.

If there is a lienholder and the title shows a print date, then the lienholder has the title and should provide it to you when you pay off the lien. The lien holder should electronically remove the lien from our records, but if they provide you with a paper lien satisfaction, be sure to take it to your local tax collector's office to have the record updated.

The advantage to leaving the title electronic is that you won't lose it and have to pay for a duplicate title.  If you trade in the vehicle in Florida, the dealership can access the title remotely and transfer it to a new owner.  If you sell the vehicle to an individual, you and the individual can go to the local tax collector's office in Florida to process the transaction.  If you lose the printed title, then you have to purchase a duplicate at the local tax collector's office.

Your local tax collector is your best source for questions about title and registration,  find their contact information here.
