The first step is to visit the website or local office that maintains vehicle registration and/or titles of the state where you recently relocated. You can obtain information regarding individual state requirements and/or time frames in which the transfer of registration must be completed. If you are unsure how to access the website for your state, you can use google or your internet search bar and search for your state DMV. From these sites, you can access and download forms you may need, get general information regarding standard transactions, and/or obtain contact information for your local DMV or tag office so you may ask more specific questions. If you are member of the AAA, you can also go to the local AAA office and process registration documents through the AAA.
In the event that your state requires the existing title be surrendered in order to reissue a new title, please request the title clerk at your local DMV or tag office to send United Auto Credit a request for the title. Be advised that United Auto Credit must be listed as the first lienholder on the new title. The request can be emailed to Titles@uacc.net or mailed to:
United Auto Credit
PO BOX 163049
Fort Worth, TX 76161
Once the request is received from the DMV or tag office, United Auto Credit will arrange for the title to be mailed directly to the DMV or tag office making the request. Please allow a minimum of three (3) weeks for the DMV or tag office to receive and process the request for the new title. All requests for title are sent via regular, first-class mail. If you would like the documents overnighted by Fed-Ex, please include a $25 check and we will 2-day Fed-EX the documents to the indicated DMV office.
For customers in KY, MD, MI, MN, and MO: You should receive your new title directly from the state DMV shortly after purchasing the vehicle. If you previously resided in one of these states and do not have the title, you will need to contact the DMV or tag office in your former state of residence in order to obtain a duplicate title.
For customers in AZ, CA, FL, GA, HI, ID, KS, LA, MA, NE, NY, OH, PA, SC, TX, VA, WA, and WI: These states offer and/or require electronic titles. You will be responsible for the payment of all fees and expenses associated with the processing of a duplicate title.
