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

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. 

Title Application (Form MV-1)
  • All owners on the title must sign the title application.
  • If any owner is not able to visit a Gwinnett County tag office, the form can be filled out online, printed and signed.
  • The original title application must be submitted with all owners' signatures.
  • The owner may complete a Limited Power of Attorney form to authorize another person to sign on their behalf.
Note: The original, notarized Limited Power of Attorney must be submitted. 

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.
  • If any lien or security interest has not been satisfied, an application for replacement title may still be processed, but the title will be sent to the lien or security interest holder.

The current mileage of the vehicle is needed, or the mileage shown on the previous Georgia title will be carried over to the replacement.

  • If there are outstanding fees such as unpaid ad valorem taxes or insurance lapse/suspension fees, those fees will be collected prior to processing an application for a replacement title.
