It is important to have a title for your car, as this is required in order to sell or junk your car. If you recently bought a car and you do not have a title or the title has been damaged or lost, you might need to get a Bonded Title. This is essentially a title based on the value of the vehicle when the original proof of ownership has been lost or damaged an cannot be reproduced.
In order to obtain a Bonded Title, you must first meet the following requirements:
If these requirements are met, you can apply for a Bonded Title at your County Tag office. Make sure to prepare the following documentation:
More information regarding these requirements can be found on the GA Department of Revenue website.
First determine your bond amount:
The bond must be in the amount of the average retail value of the vehicle according to the valuation of property listed in the Motor Vehicle Ad Valorem Assessment Manual. If you unsure or do not know how much your Certificate of Title Bond needs to be, you must call the DMV to find out. Surety companies cannot provide this amount for you, as the amount will be specific to each vehicle and situation. Please note you cannot fully complete our application and we cannot write your bond until a bond amount is established.
