Is there a problem with your vehicle’s Arizona title? Was it misplaced, damaged, or stolen? If so, you should apply for a duplicate Arizona title.
If you ever intend to transfer ownership of your vehicle, having the title in order is important. This is the legal document that proves you own the vehicle. You can’t sell it, donate it, or complete your vehicle registration or renewals without it, so keep it safe!
How can I get a duplicate title when my vehicle was last titled in Arizona?
When you title or register a vehicle in Arizona, your title information is stored electronically and you no longer automatically receive a paper title. You can view your title information in your AZ MVD Now account. Similarly, when you pay off a vehicle loan, the title will be held electronically.
If a paper title is needed, for reasons such as moving out of state, you can use the Title Replacement service on AZ MVD Now.
If you have a paper title and need to replace it, the owner of record may apply for a title replacement on AZ MVD Now using the Title Replacement service.
To apply for a printed duplicate title, the following items are required:
- License Plate Number
- Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
