Important papers should be kept in a safe and secure area. Unfortunately, sometimes they get misplaced, lost, damaged, or stolen. If you just can't seem to find that all-important title to your vehicle, what should you do? DMV.org outlines the steps you need to take to replace that document.

We'll help you through the process, tell you which forms you'll need to fill out, and how much the fees will be. Especially if you intend to sell or give away a vehicle, you'll need to process the paperwork for a lost title in time to have the transaction go through smoothly. It's also important to know that if anybody is asking for your title number, they are most likely referring to your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).
