Tennessee Bonded Title / Certificate of Title Bonds

What is a Tennessee Certificate of Title Surety Bond?

A Title Surety Bond (also known as a Bonded Title, Certificate of Title Bond, Defective Title Bond, Lost Vehicle Title Bond or DMV Bond) allows a vehicle owner to claim ownership and register the vehicle with the state. The surety bond is typically required by the current owner in order to legally transfer ownership and register the vehicle.

In Tennessee, the bond is issued for a 3 year term and the bond amount must be equal to 1.5 times the appraised value of the vehicle. Applicants must verify their required bond amount with the state prior to requesting the bond from us.

The state should provide you with a bond form. A bond is not required to get a title for vehicles that are over 30 years old.
