Get a copy of your vehicle title
If a title is lost or destroyed, you may obtain a certified copy of title from the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles. If a lien is recorded, the lienholder should complete an application for certified copy of title, or provide you with an original release of lien. There is a 30-day waiting period to apply for a certified copy of title after the last one was issued.
Note: A lien that has been paid off may still be recorded on the title. If that is the case, an original release of lien from the lienholder is required. A fax or photocopy is not acceptable.
