What is the Connecticut Duplicate Title Application Form?

Form H-6B, Application for Replacement Certificate of Title and Ownership Transfer in Absence of Title, or the Connecticut Duplicate Title Application Form, is a Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) form used by residents who want to replace a lost title or to transfer car ownership.

Residents in Connecticut can apply to have a lost title replaced through the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). All requests for new vehicle titles and lost vehicle titles are processed by the Specialized Registry Services in Wethersfield. The same procedure can be followed by those who have a damaged vehicle title or who have had their title stolen.

The CT DMV Duplicate Title Form is used if you have misplaced your title or if you are selling your vehicle to a Connecticut resident. You may apply if you’re an owner or a legal representative (with proper identification required) for a replacement certificate of title if no lien holder was listed on the original certificate of title.

You can apply in person at any DMV Hub Office or Limited Service Office (with prior appointment) or by mailing the application and $25 check or money order payable DMV to:

State of Connecticut

Department of Motor Vehicles

60 State Street

Wethersfield, CT 06161

You should receive your new title in about 90 days. It will be mailed to the title owner or the lien holder. Note that Connecticut does not participate in any electronic title or electronic lien holder program.

Bear in mind that duplicate titles are only granted to owners on record, so if a lien holder?such as a bank or credit union?was listed on the original title, you also need to obtain a lien release from the lender.

If you don't have the Title Certificate, you won't be able to transfer ownership of your vehicle. The most typical cause for not having the Certificate is that the car has a lien holder (lender). Until the lien (debt) is paid off, the lien holder retains possession of the title. This common scenario necessitates a transfer of the title to you rather than a replacement of the original title.

To remove a lien holder, the lien holder must sign a release attached to the official application for the duplicate title. If the lien holder cannot be found, complete Form H-113, Motor Vehicle Ownership Affidavit. To add a lien holder to a duplicate title, complete Form H-13B, Connecticut Registration and Title Application, and pay the fee.

For vehicles over 20 model years old, replacement titles are not required according to Connecticut State Law.
