You, my unfortunate friend, must go to the DMV. Best of luck to you, and remember, use small words and smile frequently. Also, avoid asking any questions and bring cash, enough food and water for three days and make out your will...just in case.

Best of luck.

And a magazine for reading - not Robb Report it's just yachts and stuff for the playboys. Playboys are OK but they mite take them away if it's more of a PURITAN government agency. Get something non-seductive like Time or Good Housekeeping or one with cars or dancing. And cars is like DMV = cars. Try it out, why would I disappoint you on purpose?

If you are still in VA, it looks like you need to fill out a couple of forms (VSA 12 and VSA 17A) and submit them with fees etc.

Check this site out and do a search for "loss of title."

And remember you can always schedule an appointment at the DMV. I did when I needed to renew my license and it took all of 10 minutes to go through the line, have my picture taken and do the little test.

I recommend making an appointment at the DMV rather than just showing up. It will significantly reduce your waiting time.

I recently had to get a title because it was misplaced. As long as you're the owner, and can make an appointment, it's really not so bad. Just make sure you know a few DMV around your area and find out which is better.

The DMV here doesn't take appointments. The last time I went to the DMV I took a number, left, came back an hour later and I only had to wait 15 minutes.
