Bonded Title Procedure

An applicant who is unable to provide the county clerk with a certificate of title that assigns the prior owner's interest, a notarized bill of sale or other evidence of ownership that satisfies the county clerk that the applicant owns the vehicle, a certificate of title may be issued only if:

  1. An affidavit of ownership form (found below) is filled out in its entirety.
  2. A vehicle identification number inspection is completed by law enforcement.
  3. A title search from the Wyoming Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Services is completed.
  4. If applicable, contact any lien holders identified via certified letter to request liens be released.
  5. If applicable, contact the previous owner via certified letter to request that a title be established and properly executed, transferring ownership to you.
  6. Establish the retail value of the vehicle by one of the following methods: current national appraisal guide (for example, Kelley Blue Book or NADA), from a current or past registration, or a licensed Wyoming vehicle dealer.
  7. A surety bond for twice the retail value shall be issued by an insurance provider-a surety bond is not required for vehicles or watercraft valued at less than $2,500.00.
  8. Contact your local county clerk's office to see if you meet the requirements for a bonded title.
