Corrected Or Updated Titles

Should you find an error or simply need to make a change to your title, there is a process to allow for title correction.

The following documents and information is required:
  • Application for title/registration must be completed, signed by all registered owners and notarized. Persons that have power of attorney for the owner(s) may sign, but a copy of the power of attorney must be submitted with the application. If County Clerk staff notarizes signatures, identification must be presented. Note: Titles that contain AND (instead of OR) between names of owners requires signature of all owners.
  • The current vehicle title must be submitted with the application for updated title.
  • If the application is for the purpose of applying for a loan, the owner needs to indicate this on the application. A pending lien will be noted and the owner will be given a goldenrod copy of the registration to present to the lending institution. The lending institution will use the registration and a Title Lien Statement to record the lien.
Note: The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, Title Branch will mail the updated title within 10-14 business days of application. (If a pending lien is filed, printing of the title is held for 30 days.)
