Duplicate Vehicle Title

The lienholder or the vehicle owner of record, when there is no lienholder, may apply for a duplicate title if the original has been lost, stolen, destroyed, mutilated or becomes unreadable.If the title to a person's vehicle is lost, stolen or destroyed, they may not sell the vehicle to someone without first obtaining a duplicate title in their name and then releasing the duplicate title to the buyer.
To apply for a duplicate title, the following items are required:

  • A notarized Affidavit of Lost, Stolen or Destroyed Title   (See the information following the mailing address if you are unable to pull up this form and print it.)
  • A lien release from any lienholder of record
  • $15.00 

A person may obtain an Affidavit of Lost, Stolen or Destroyed Title from any Alaska Division of Motor Office or request one in writing at the address below. This procedure applies only to titles which have been issued by Alaska. If a person has lost an out-of-state title, they will have to apply to the issuing state to obtain a duplicate title. Additionally, this procedure does not apply to a title that is not readily accessible, i.e. locked in a safe deposit box or stored or shipped in household goods. If a person has the title or knows the whereabouts of the title, they should not execute an Affidavit of Lost, Stolen or Destroyed Title. To do so may subject them to criminal prosecution.
