U.S. citizens desiring a name change on this document should bring the original or certified copy of the marriage certificate, divorce certificate, or court order indicating the name change to a driver license office. Be sure to bring your current driver's license. You might also need to provide proof of citizenship or legal residency, so bring an acceptable document. For an exact checklist on what documents you'll need to bring, visit the state's handy Gather Go Get page.
Before you go to the office, update your information with the Social Security Administration. Give the agency at least 48 hours to process your request. Visit the Social Security site for instructions on how to change your name with the agency.
If everything checks out, you'll receive a corrected license for $25.
If you're a non-U.S. citizen, first change your name on your Immigration and Naturalization Service document. Then, go to a driver license office with the original or certified copy of the marriage certificate, divorce certificate, or court order indicating the name change. Remember to bring your current license and proof of legal presence. Corrected licenses cost $25.
There are two ways to change your name on your registration.
First, just change your name on your driver's license. This will automatically trigger the change on your registration.
Second, you can apply for a corrected title. Again, this will automatically alter your name on the registration.
Titles don't have to be altered just because of a name change, as the owner hasn't changed.
But, if you want the title to reflect the new name, bring the document to a county tax collector office and transfer it into the new name. If there's a lien on the vehicle, you'll need to receive permission from the lienholder to do this.
Corrected titles cost $29.75.
