VIN inspection required on all used vehicles and the original is required to accompany the Motor Vehicle Work

Rhode Island does not require a person to apply for a new title once the lien has been satisfied. RI only requires the lien to be released by your lien holder signing off on the title and/or providing you with a letter of lien release to attach to the title.

You can only apply for a duplicate title if you are the owner listed on the original title. If you still have a lien on the vehicle, the lienholder can apply.

If your title has a lienholder listed on it but you’ve paid off the loan, you will need an original lien release from the lienholder and present it with your application.
