California Lost Title Surety Bond

Bond Requirements and Online Application

The California Lost Title Surety Bond is required by the Registration Division of the Department of Motor Vehicles.

The bond value of the California Lost Title Surety Bond is generally the current value of the vehicle.  To the owner, the overall cost of a California Lost Title Surety Bond is generally $100.00.   Based on the value of the car without regular evidence of ownership, this bond may be required when the title of a vehicle is damaged or cannot be produced.  

The California Lost Title Surety Bond is also referred to as:

  • Defective Title Bond
  • Certificate of Title Bond

This bond must have conditions that protect the Department of Motor Vehicles, the applicant and any future owners of the car.  These conditions must protect the DMV, the applicant and future owners from loss resulting from any defect or undisclosed claim the owner did not report.

What is the Bond Amount?

If you do not know how much your Lost Title Bond needs to be, you must call the DMV to find out. Surety companies do not know how much your bond needs to be for, only the DMV does. You cannot fully complete our application and we cannot write your bond until the DMV tells you how much the bond amount is.
