To obtain a duplicate Kentucky title, a Vehicle Transaction Record (VTR) must be signed by the registered owner, with the signature notarized. No one can sign for the duplicate title other than the registered owner, unless they have power of attorney to do so in which case a copy of the power of attorney must be presented to the County Clerk's Office. The mileage is required on the Vehicle Transaction Record (VTR) also, along with the appropriate boxes marked.

Duplicate titles are mailed directly from the Department of Transportation in Frankfort, Kentucky, to the address on the Vehicle Transaction Record (VTR). The fee to process the application for duplicate title is $6.00. Checks or money orders should be made payable to the Hardin County Court Clerk. This fee along with the application must be returned to our office at the address listed below.
