DMV: Requesting a Title Search

Title Search Certificate

A Title Search will provide the requestor with a verification of the current titled owner of record of a motor vehicle in the State of Connecticut.  If the requester wants additional information such as odometer readings or a complete ownership history on record, then it should be so noted in Section 3 (Miscellaneous Request) of a Title Copy Records Request (form J-23T).

Please note that if a title to a vehicle has been either lost or stolen, a request for duplicate title must be made. 

The person or company requesting a Title Search must complete a Title Copy Records Request (form J-23T).  The fee is $20.  Certification is an additional $20.  The Title Copy Records Request (form J-23T) must have the make, year, and identification number of the vehicle.  Additional information such as a registration number or name would also be useful.

When submitting the Title Copy Records Request (form J-23T) the requester must enclose copies of two forms of identification as stated on the back of the form.

Mail completed form and payment to:

Department of Motor Vehicles
Title Division
60 State Street
Wethersfield, CT  06161

Note:  If evidence is needed for tax purposes that ownership of a motor vehicle has been transferred, do not request a Title Search.  Instead, request a photocopy of the cancelled title.  The fee is $20.  Certification is an additional $20.
