How to apply for a replacement title in Oklahoma

Applying in person

If you plan on applying for a new title in person, you’ll need to visit your local Motor Vehicle Division or any Oklahoma Motor License Agency. Once there, you’ll need to:
  • Submit your filled out Form 701-1
  • Submit all required documents
  • Present valid ID–can be your driver’s license
  • Show proof of ownership (such as a bill of sale)
  • Pay the $11 replacement fee
  • Wait for your replacement title

Applying by mail

If you plan on applying for a new title by mail, you’ll need to:
  • Fill out and sign your Form 701-1
  • Have your Form 701-1 notarized
  • Get copies of all required documents
  • Send a copy of your valid ID–can be your driver’s license
  • Provide proof of ownership (such as a bill of sale)
  • Show current registration paperwork

    Applying out-of-state

    To apply for a replacement title from out of state, you’ll need either current Oklahoma registration or evidence of out-of-state residency.
    Out-of-state residency can be proven by:
    • An out of state registration for your vehicle
    • A utility bill
    • A rental agreement
    • An out of state driver’s license in the name of the record holder
    If the Oklahoma registration is not current and your out-of-state residency can’t be proven, you’ll need to repay all late registration fees/penalties and submit an Oklahoma insurance verification form. A replacement title can’t be issued until you’ve completed both of those steps.

    How long does it take to get a replacement title in Oklahoma?

    Depending on how you submitted your application, you can expect a wait time of up to a few hours or weeks.
    People applying in person will often receive their new title within a few hours of their paperwork being processed. Those that mail in their application can expect a much longer turnaround time, due to the additional step of the USPS processing the mail.

    When do you need to replace your car title?

    Your car’s title is a crucial piece of documentation. If you don’t have your vehicle’s title, there’s no official proof that you’re the rightful owner. Along with that, selling your car or moving to another state requires a transfer of title—both of which can’t be done without the original title in hand.  
    Begin the application process for a duplicate certificate of title as soon as possible if your vehicle’s title is:
    • Stolen
    • Lost
    • Altered
    • Illegible
    • Damaged
