Certificate of title bonds verify that you rightfully own a vehicle for which no formal title documentation exists. 

A title bond might be required when:

  • the original title has been lost or stolen
  • the vehicle was paid for, the title was never given, and the seller cannot be contacted
  • the vehicle is too old to have a title
  • the vehicle is custom-built

Certificate of title bonds are also known as vehicle title bonds, lost title bonds, or defective title bonds, but they all serve the same purpose.

Contact your local DMV to confirm your vehicle's value and exact bond amount needed before submitting your title bond request online 24/7. If you have additional questions about the title bonding process at this time, call 1 (800) 308-4358, and one of our friendly representatives will be happy to help.
