Acquiring a Duplicate Michigan Title While Out of State
You may request a replacement title online. Ordering a replacement title online costs $15 and the title can only be issued to the owner listed on the title document.

If you have submitted a change of address to the Secretary of State's office within the last 10 days or have an appointment of agent or power of attorney designation, you cannot order a replacement title online.
