To replace your West Virginia vehicle or watercraft title, you'll first need to complete the Affidavit of Duplicate Title for a Vehicle or Watercraft form.
All you need to provide is basic information about yourself as well as your vehicle or watercraft. You'll also have to state what happened to your old title, i.e. yours was lost, destroyed, defaced, or you never received it.
Remember: You must send a copy of your driver's license with your application.
The fee for replacing a lost title is $10.
If there is―or ever has been―a lien on your vehicle or watercraft, or you're replacing your title because you've satisfied your lien, you and your lienholder must complete the third section of the application.
Submit your application to your local DMV Regional Office, or mail it to:
- Department of Transportation
- Division of Motor Vehicles
- Building 3, Capitol Complex
- Charleston, WV 25305
