My Minnesota title is missing or never received. How can I get one?

A registered owner of the vehicle must come in with their license to request a duplicate title.  If a title has previously been issued, we can usually print a duplicate in our office. The fee for this is $20.50.  

To streamline the process, please complete a Duplicate Title Application (PDF) before you come in.

If a title has not already been issued, we can look into the record and see why, and assist you to correct any issues that would have prevented the title from being issued.

If you have registered a vehicle in Minnesota and have not received your title within 3-4 months, please come in so we can check it out.
