To apply for a replacement title in Gwinnett County, the vehicle must have a current title on record in your name in the state of Georgia, and you must reside in Gwinnett County. If you have moved out of state, and the last title issued for your vehicle was in the state of Georgia, you may apply for a replacement title in Gwinnett as long as your last Georgia address was a Gwinnett address. If it was a county other than Gwinnett, you must contact that county to apply for a replacement title. 

If your vehicle is currently titled in another state, you must contact that state to obtain a replacement title. 

Once a replacement title has been issued, any previous title is null and void.

Lien/Security Interest Release
  • If your vehicle previously had a lien that has been released, you will need to bring a Lien Release form with an original signature (no photocopies or faxes) that has been completed by your lienholder.
