    Summary: How to Change Your Name in Louisiana

    Information on making a name change on your driver’s license/ID card, your car registration, and certificate of title.

    Changing Your Name in Louisiana

    If your name has changed recently for any reason—including marriage, divorce, or other court order—you will need to notify the Alaska Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and obtain an updated driver’s license.

    You will also need to have your name changed on your vehicle registration and certificate of title.

    Change Your Name with the SSA

    Before you change your name with the AK DMV, you may want to first change your name with the Social Security Administration (SSA). The DMV may verify your information with the SSA, so it’s important to have your name up to date on their records first.

    To change your name with the SSA, submit the following documents either by mail or in person to your local office:

    • A completed Application for a Social Security Card (Form SS-5).
    • Documents (original or certified) proving your:
      • Name change (e.g. marriage certificate, divorce decree, court order).
      • U.S. citizenship (if not already on file) OR your U.S. immigration document (including your I-94 printout).
      • Identity (e.g. driver’s license, passport, ID card).

    A complete list of documents required for a corrected card can be found on the SSA website.

    The SSA will send you an updated Social Security card showing your new name within about 10 business days.

    Driver’s License/ID Card Name Change

    Once you’ve changed your name, you’ll need to notify the AK DMV within 30 days of the change. You’ll need to visit the Alaska DMV in person with:

    NOTE: If you are changing the name on your Alaska driver’s license, you may need to pass the vision test.

    AK Vehicle Registration/Title Name Change

    To change the name on your certificate title and registration, you’ll need to visit the Alaska DMV office in person and complete a title transfer.

    You will need to submit your certificate of title with the sale portion completed in full:

    • Put your previous name as the seller.
    • Put your new name as the buyer.
    • Write “Name change only” and the reason for the change (e.g. due to marriage).

    NOTE: You do not need to include the odometer reading if all you’re doing is changing your name.

    You will need to pay the $15 duplicate title fee, plus any additional fees if there is a lien on the vehicle.

    You will also need to apply for a duplicate registration certificate, see our Replacing a Registration page.

    To change your name and receive updated documents from the Alaska DMV, you’ll need to pay the following fees:

    • Driver’s license: $15.
    • ID card: $15 (free if you’re 60 years old or older).
    • Title certificate: $15.
