I cannot find my...

I cannot find my car title, The vehicle was purchased in Florida and I now live in MD. Can you help me?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And how old is the car?

I now live in MD but bought the car in Florida. The car is a 2010 Toyota Highlander. I bought it used in FL in 2014.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I am hoping not to return to Florida to get a copy of my title.

Welcome to JA and thank you for your question. I will be the Attorney that will be assisting you.

Ask Your Own Legal Question

You can ask Florida for a duplicate title. People misplace car titles quite often.

Ask Your Own Legal Question

"By Mail

If you feel more comfortable replacing car title papers via mail, then all you have to do is submit your vehicle title replacement application and requested fees to the county tax collector office of your choice. You may want to call the office ahead of time and find out if they offer expedited services. As a general rule of thumb, the Department of Motor Vehicles processes your auto title replacement application in roughly five or so business days.

Replace Online

The state of Florida does not allow drivers to get a car title replacement online. Instead, you will be required to either make an in-person visit to your local tax county collector's office, or submit your request for a duplicate car title by mail.

Replacement Title Fees

The vehicle title fees vary in Florida, depending on the vehicle you own and other factors. They are as follows:

  • For out-of-state car title: $85.25
  • To add a lien to a car title: $74.25
  • Expedited car title: $85.25
  • Paper car title for new vehicles: $77.25
  • Electronic car title for vehicles previously registered in Florida: $75.25"
