Court Order Titles

A court order can allow an individual to apply directly to the Registrar of the Bureau of Motor Vehicles and submit evidence for ownership of a motor vehicle.

If the Registrar finds the evidence insufficient, the applicant may petition the Court of Common Pleas for a court order instructing a County Clerk of Courts Title Office to issue a certificate of title.

Example: A court order would be necessary to obtain a certificate of title when a vehicle has been abandoned on private property and the owner cannot be located.

What Do I Need to Do?

Contact your local County Clerk of Courts Title Office to obtain court order instructions.

Please Note: Some County Clerk of Courts Title Offices may not have court order instructions. In addition, there is no guarantee a court order will be granted.
