A name change, whether as a result of marriage, divorce, or something else, is a fact of life for many people.
When you make that change, you'll need to notify the DMV to ensure that the change is reflected on your documents―specifically, your driver's license, title, and registration forms.
You have 30 days in Hawaii to notify the DMV in person of the name change.
The DMV requires certified evidence of the name change. This can include the marriage license, divorce decree, or court order. You will receive a new license before leaving the office, but you will have to pay a $5 duplicate license fee.
Before you go to the office, it's best to first change your name with the Social Security Administration (SSA). Give the agency at least 48 hours to process your request. Visit the agency's site for details on how to change your name with the SSA.
As with the driver's license, you have 30 days to update your name change on your registration document. This also involves a trip to your DMV office as certified proof of the name change prevents completing the process via mail.
Simply bring in your old registration card along with a necessary evidentiary document (i.e., marriage license, divorce decree, court order, etc.). A duplicate registration certificate fee may apply, depending on the county.
Changing your name on your vehicle title involves a bit more effort if the document is in the files of a lienholder. If this is the case, you will need to contact the lienholder and ask for a temporary release of the document to the DMV.
Once the document is with the DMV, you can visit an office with the necessary name change documentation and complete the transaction. It is best to contact your local DMV office prior to contacting the lienholder to ensure you have the title mailed to the correct location.
