Duplicate titles are issued when the original title for a vehicle is lost, stolen or destroyed. Once a duplicate title is produced, the original title is no longer valid. Only the current owner, lienholder or a New Hampshire licensed dealer of a vehicle may request a duplicate title for that vehicle.

Apply for a Duplicate Title

To get a duplicate title for a vehicle, the current owner must provide the following:

Applications may be dropped off at most of our DMV offices, or you may mail it to:

NH Dept. of Safety
DMV - Title
23 Hazen Drive
Concord NH  03305

Once the application is received and verified, a duplicate title will be produced and mailed to the vehicle's owner within three (3) to five (5) business days.

A duplicate title may be mailed to a New Hampshire licensed dealer if the owner so indicates by signing the "Authorization for Mailing" (line 22) on the Duplicate Title Application.
