Auto Title - A Year In Review

The Clerk of Court's Title Division issues original Certificates of Title, duplicate titles, title transfers from out-of-state vehicles or watercraft, and memorandum titles - a copy of the title for individuals who are making payments on their vehicle.

The Title Main/South branch also has limited deputy registrar authority. At this location (and only at this location; the other three title branches cannot issue these items), customers can obtain temporary tags, transfer their tags and register for new plates.

However, the Title South branch can complete these transactions only when a customer is having title work done. For all other licensing and tag needs, visit the nearest Deputy Registrar - there is a registrar located near each of our title branch locations.

Please make checks payable to Franklin County Clerk Of Courts Auto Title Division.
