Bond Penalty: Twice vehicle value

A motor vehicle owner may avail him or herself of the Wyoming title bond option through a county clerk when an original title has been lost, destroyed or is considered defective. The Wyoming Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) offers helpful instructions for preparing and filing an application for titling with a Wyoming certificate of title bond. Only vehicles with a current value of two thousand five hundred dollars ($2,500) require this procedure.

  • Complete an affidavit of ownership (here).
  • Obtain a vehicle identification number (VINI) inspection from a law enforcement agency.
  • Accomplish a title search through the Wyoming Department of Transportation (title search form). In any liens are found, contact those lien holders by certified mail and request liens be released.
  • Obtain a current retail value of the vehicle by though a licensed Wyoming auto dealer, from a current or past vehicle registration, or throug a publication that offers motor vehicle values such as Kelly Blue Book (KBB) or National Auto Dealers Association Guides (NADA).

The Wyoming title bond must be executed by a surety company licensed to do business in the state and be issued in an amount (bond penalty) no less than twice the "retail value" of the vehicle. Questions can be directed to:
