Do I need to bring my car to a locksmith to get a car key duplicated?

Not necessarily. Some locksmiths may be able to create a duplicate set of keys using a sample key or a code, which means you may not need to bring your car to the locksmith in person.

However, in some cases, it may be necessary to bring your car to the locksmith to have the keys duplicated, particularly if you have a newer vehicle with a complex key system.
