INSTRUCTIONS FOR OBTAINING A DUPLICATE TITLE
To obtain a duplicate Kentucky title, a Vehicle Transaction Record (VTR) must be signed by the registered owner, with the signature notarized. No one can sign for the duplicate title other than the registered owner, unless they have power of attorney to do so in which case a copy of the power of attorney must be presented to the County Clerk's Office. The mileage is required on the Vehicle Transaction Record (VTR) also, along with the appropriate boxes marked.
Duplicate titles are mailed directly from the Department of Transportation in Frankfort, Kentucky, to the address on the Vehicle Transaction Record (VTR). The fee to process the application for duplicate title is $6.00, plus there will be a $2.00 fee if we fill the application out for you in the office. Checks or money orders should be made payable to the Cumberland County Court Clerk.
