You can do this yourself. It is not tht difficult. The clerk of the probate court will have the forms that you need. If the only asset is the vehicle, the clerk will have a simple form for you that will allow you to get a new title to the vehilce.
Had your mother registered the truck with a Transfer on Death deignation you could have avoided probate. Nevertheless this should not take too much time.
Here is a link to an example in PDF of the document that you need it is from Erie County, but the form will be the same in your county:
Note the clerk can not give you legal advice, but they can give you an example of the completed form.
Once you file the form the probate court will process it. You will not need to appear for any proceeding. You will get an Order in the mail allowing you to transfer the title. Once you have the order from the court you will return to the title office and obtain a new title.
