    LA Replacing a Lost Title

    Since your title is proof that you are the legal owner of your vehicle, you should always store the document in a safe place. However, if you ever lose or damage your title, you can request a duplicate from the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV).

    The following parties are allowed to request a duplicate title:

    • The last registered owner of the vehicle.
    • A person granted power of attorney for the last registered owner.
    • A curator for the last registered owner if he or she is determined to be interdicted and thus incapable of handling the transaction.
    • A bankruptcy trustee.
    • The recorded lienholder for the vehicle.
    • A representative for a corporation that has a legitimate interest in the vehicle.

    To request a duplicate title, bring a completed Vehicle Application to your nearest OMV office. If you wish, you may change the following fields on your new title:

    • Customer address
    • Driver's license number
    • Employer identification number (EIN)
    • Secondary address
    • Lienholder status

    If there is an open lien on the vehicle, a notarized Affidavit of Non-Possession of Title by Lienholder must be completed by the lienholder. In this case, the duplicate title will be mailed to the lienholder after processing.

    The OMV charges $18.50 to issue a duplicate title, plus an additional $8.00 handling fee.
