If you change your name, you will need to update the information on your driver's license (or ID card), vehicle registration, and title. You can make a name change at any full-service DMV office.
You must fill out a Change of Name Request (Form E-78), show your current driver's license or ID card, and present certified documents that show your name change, such as a marriage license or divorce decree. Photo copies and religious certificates are excluded. The service is $30.
For a name change on a registration, you must fill out a Registration Affidavit (Form B-301). You also will be asked to show certified documents with your new name. If you don't surrender your current registration, the service is $20.
If you want to change your name on a vehicle title, you need to complete and sign an Application for Registration and Certificate of Title(Form H-13). Take the form, along with the original title, to a DMV branch office. Write your new name on the title's reverse side and sign it as the vehicle owner.
You also need to take:
- Your vehicle registration card.
- Marriage license, divorce decree, or other certified documents showing the name change.
- Your updated Connecticut Insurance Identification Card that has your new name.
- Your updated driver's license that has your new name.
If you have a non-titled vehicle―manufactured before 1981―a Supplemental Assignment of Ownership (Form Q-1) needs to be filled out.
If you don't turn in your registration, you will be charged $20.
If you are still making car payments, there is an additional step. You need to obtain a release for name change only from your lender, and bring it to the DMV along with the other documents.
