Adding or Changing a Lienholder to a Title
Holiday Closing: On Thursday, July 4, DMV offices will be closed for the Independence Day holiday. On Friday, July 5, offices will reopen at 7:45 a.m.
When adding a lienholder to a title, a transaction called a "Title Only" will have to be completed. Please follow the instructions below:
The above documentation should be mailed to:
Department of Motor Vehicles
Specialized Registry Services
60 State Street
Wethersfield, CT 06161
NOTE: You may have received a lien release letter stating that the loan has been satisfied. It is not necessary for you to obtain a new certificate of title removing your previous lien holder. You may retain the stamped paid certificate of title from your lien holder, and use this title for future sale or transfer of the vehicle.
Please note: Connecticut does not participate in any electronic title or electronic lien holder program and at this time is not able to receive an electronic title or lien holder record.
