Pennsylvania: Getting Rid of Car w/ No Title


Anyone familiar w/ PA laws, can you answer the following:

I have a car to junk. But I can’t find the title. Do I really have to spend $22.50 and pay insurance while waiting for a title just so I can unload this heap or is there a beter way? To be clear: I’m not selling the car, just want it gone now.


I doubt that any reputable “junk” dealer would take a car to which you do not hold the title, but an “official” answer is your best bet. So, rather than taking the opinion of someone on this board who could be correct or who could be incorrect, I would strongly suggest that you contact the PA Division of Motor Vehicles for the official answer.
