Hurricane Katrina: Replacement Titles for Vehicles

Many vehicles, including title documents, were lost or destroyed as result of the hurricane. Due to the negotiable nature of the title document, the Department of Revenue cannot replace a title over the phone or by email.

The following steps outline the fastest way to obtain a replacement title:

  1. The application for a replacement title is located on our website. Please print this document and write "hurricane" at the top of the document.
  2. Complete and sign the application form.
  3. Enclose the $4 fee with your application. Your check may be made payable to the Department of Revenue.
  4. Mail the application and payment to Tony Lawler at P. O. Box 22828, Jackson, MS 39225. (do not send to box listed on application.)

If you cannot access the application from the website, we will be happy to mail a form to you. Please contact us at 601-923-7200.

Forms are also available in the Hattiesburg District office located at 17 J M Tatum Industrial Drive in Hattiesburg. The phone number for the Hattiesburg District is 601- 545-1261. (The Gulf Coast office is temporarily closed due to damage.)​​
