All forms of ID must be valid and cannot be expired more than 12 months. If an individual other than the owner(s) is receiving the certified copy of title in person, that individual must also present a valid photo ID.

Applicant Guidelines

Individual(s) Applying

If a vehicle is in the name of an individual(s), the individual owner(s) must each sign this application and must provide a copy of each owner’s government issued photo ID.

Entity Applying

If the vehicle is in the name of an entity, an agent representing the entity must sign the application.

Additional Requirements: Letter of signature authority on letterhead, printed business card (containing the agent’s name), or employee ID connecting the signing agent to the entity (may be copies) and copy of the agent’s government issued photo ID.

Lienholder Applying

If the vehicle has a recorded lien, the lienholder (or an agent of the lienholder) may apply for a Certified Copy of Texas Title and sign the application.

Additional Requirements: If the lienholder is an individual, a copy of the individual’s government issued photo ID. If the lienholder is an entity, letter of signature authority on letterhead, printed business card (containing the agent’s name), or employee ID connecting the signing agent to the entity (may be copies) and copy of the agent’s government issued photo ID.

Using Power(s) of Attorney

If a power of attorney (POA) is used, the above requirements apply for both the individual or entity granting the POA and the individual or entity being granted POA. For an individual (whether granting or being granted the POA), a copy of that individual’s government issued photo ID is required. For an entity (whether granting or being granted the POA), both a copy of the agent’s government issued photo ID and a letter of signature authority on letterhead, printed business card (with the agent’s name), or employee ID connecting the signing agent to the entity (may be copies) are required.

Lien on Title Record

If the current owner(s) of the motor vehicle had a lien (loan or financing) of any kind on the motor vehicle, even if it has been paid off, the department’s records may still show the lien unless the owner(s) filed an application to have the lien removed or received a new title (without a lien shown) from the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles after payoff.

An original, signed release of lien on lienholder’s original letterhead or on the Prescribed Form for Release of Lien (Form VTR-266) is required if there is a lien shown on the department’s record. Photocopies, faxes, and scans are not acceptable. If the release of lien is on the Form VTR-266, the lienholder’s agent signing the Form VTR-266 must attach a letter of signature authority on letterhead, printed business card (with the agent’s name), or employee ID that connects the agent to the entity (copies acceptable).
