If you need a replacement title through the CA DMV here’s what you’ve got to do:

  • Fill out an Application for Duplicate Title form (Form REG 227)
  • Pay the duplicate title fee of $20 (can vary depending on the motor vehicle)
  • Mail in the application form or bring it to a CA DMV office.

What is a title for a car?

A car title is a document establishing the legal owner of a vehicle, whether a person or business, that’s issued by a state department of motor vehicles. It’s also referred to as a certificate of title or pink slip (as car titles in California were once that color).

Is a car title and registration the same thing?

The vehicle’s title and registration are linked to one another – so it’s no surprise people confuse the two terms. To register a vehicle with your state’s DMV, you must show proof of ownership, verifying that your name is on the title of the vehicle.

Can you sell a car without a title?

So you’re trying to sell a vehicle, but don’t have a title. Even though buying or selling a vehicle without proof of ownership is illegal in most jurisdictions, there are ways to sell a vehicle you don’t have the title for.
