The Alabama Certificate of Title Bond is required by the Alabama Department of Revenue, Motor Vehicle Division. The bond does not protect you. It’s protection for the Motor Vehicle Division in case someone else with the title to the vehicle claims that it is theirs.
When the Department is not satisfied as to the ownership of the vehicle, as a condition of issuing a Certificate of Title, they may require the applicant to file a Certificate of Title bond. With this bond, you are making it known that you are the only owner and that you acquired the vehicle legally.
The bond amount varies. Check with the Motor Vehicle Division before applying for your Certificate of Title bond. Verify with them what bond amount you need. Please note you cannot fully complete our application and we cannot write your bond until a bond amount is established.
Start by completing the Department’s application using the Motor Vehicle Title, Registration and Insurance Portal (MVTRIP) https://bonds.mvtrip.alabama.gov. Once approved, you will receive the information necessary to apply for your bond.
Start the process by completing our easy to navigate, free online application form.

After that, once you are ready to move forward, you just need to pay the premium and sign the agreement. Lastly, your Alabama Certificate of Title bond will be mailed to you by USPS Priority Mail.
