The Clerk of Courts Auto Title Division is comprised of four branch locations. The Auto Title Division processes titles for motor vehicles, watercraft, motorcycles, manufactured homes and campers. Whether you are buying or selling a motor vehicle, our Auto Title Division is there to grant the proof of ownership required by state law.

The Clerk's Auto Title Division has implemented a variety of initiatives, from Ohio's first motor vehicle titling mobile application to our state-of-the-art auto title facilities. These initiatives are geared to further professionalize our Office and enhance the level of service we provide to the Franklin County community and beyond.

Division-wide Fraud Prevention Training
As part of the Clerk's goal of professionalizing the Office, the Auto Title Division received training from the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles Investigations Unit to help our staff identify and confiscate fradulent documents specific to motor vehicles.
