Adding or Changing a Lienholder to a Title

When adding a lienholder to a title, a transaction called a "Title Only" will have to be completed.  Please follow the instructions below:
  • Complete an Application for Registration and Title (form H-13B).  The registrant must sign this form.
  • Submit a check made payable to the Department of Motor Vehicles in the amount of $45.
  • Submit the current title.
    NOTE:  A new title will be issued and sent directly to the lienholder listed.
The above documentation should be mailed to:
Department of Motor Vehicles
Specialized Registry Services
60 State Street
Wethersfield, CT 06161
NOTE: You may have received a lien release letter stating that the loan has been satisfied. It is not necessary for you to obtain a new certificate of title removing your previous lien holder. You may retain the stamped paid certificate of title from your lien holder, and use this title for future sale or transfer of the vehicle.
Please note: Connecticut does not participate in any electronic title or electronic lien holder program and at this time is not able to receive an electronic title or lien holder record.
