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.

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.

Ohio Revised Code: 4505.10
