Does My Car Title Need to Be in My Name to get a Title Loan?

You are here: Home » Information » Does My Car Title Need to Be in My Name to get a Title Loan?

Yes! At LoanMart your car title needs to be in your name to get a title loan. If your car title is not in your name, don’t worry! We may still be able to help you.

Instances where your name may not be on the car title:

  • When buying a vehicle
  • When inheriting a vehicle
  • When paying off a loan
  • When receiving a gifted vehicle
  • If your name appears but so does someone else’s name.

If your name DOES appear on the car title but someone else’s name is also listed, know that either party could get a title loan in most states.

If your name DOES NOT appear on your car title, LoanMart may be able to help you update the name listed through the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). When you complete the process of changing your name with the DMV you will be able to use your car title to apply for a title loan.

This is how to get the process started:

  • Visit your local DMV to update the name in person. Unlike submitting address changes, this should not be completed online or through postal mail.
  • Go to the DMV with authentic identification. You will be required to have an acceptable ID. You can check with your DMV’s website for a list of valid forms of identification.
  • Present your existing car title or car registration.
  • Bring the required payment amount to cover any duplicate title or registration fees.
  • If applicable, bring your marriage certificate, divorce documents or court papers issued in the U.S proving you name change.
