What is the Maine Duplicate Title Application form?

  • The Maine Duplicate Title Application form or Form MVT-8 is also referred to as a ‘duplicate title application’, and it is a document by the Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicles to process requests of reissuing a Certification of Title.
  • A Certification of Title is a document that provides legal proof of ownership that is governed by state laws and varies by state, and is a needed document when transferring ownership of a property.
  • A duplicate of a Certificate of Title may be issued if the original document was lost, stolen, mutilated, or destroyed.
  • Owner/s of vehicle models 1995 or newer whose Certificate of Title was lost, stolen, mutilated, or destroyed should fill out the Maine Duplicate Title Application form or Form MVT-8 so that they are reissued a new one.
