What Is a Bonded Car Title?

A bonded car title is a document that proves vehicle ownership. It can often be used instead of a standard vehicle title. A bonded car title is issued if the car owner has no proof of ownership when applying for a vehicle title.

Consumers can contact a local Department of Motor Vehicles office to obtain a bonded car title if they cannot acquire a standard title and other supporting documents for a vehicle. They can complete all of the necessary bonded title paperwork and keep all receipts and document copies for future reference. They must also pay any taxes due on the vehicle if required by the state's regulations.
