When the title of a vehicle is damaged or cannot be produced, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) generally requests that you obtain a surety bond. The bond is a requirement of many states.
The bond is very easy to obtain. All we need is an application and we can get the bond approved for $100 in most cases.
This bond is also referred to as a: Defective Title Bond, Lost Title Bond, or Certificate of Title Bond.
The bond protects the DMV from you, in case someone else with the title to the vehicle claims that it is theirs.
The cost of a lost car title bond is 1.5% of the bond amount, subject to a $100.00 minimum premium. Bonds under $25,000 are written regardless of credit.
Before you fill out an application:
1. Gather the make, model, year, and VIN number of the vehicle.
2. Check with your local Department of Motor Vehicles to make sure you actually need a bond.
Only the DMV can tell you exactly what your bond requirements are, including the bond amount. Surety1 can only write your bond once you get this information from the DMV.
