If your name changes―for example, because of a recent marriage or divorce― you can easily update your driver's license or identification card. Either apply for a duplicate card, or change your name when you renew. You'll also need to hand over your current driver's license or identification card.
Legal Proof of Your New Name
When you visit the nearest sheriff's office, show the examiner proof of name change. You can use a certified marriage certificate that meets the State's standards, a divorce decree, or documents from the court that reflect a date that falls later than the current record.
The fee for a duplicate license or ID card is $11.50.
Making changes to either your title or your registration requires an in-person visit. However, when you trek to your county DMV to change your title, you can also easily change your registration at the same time.
For starters, you'll need to create what the DMV calls a "one-in-the-same" form. Some counties might have their own form, but you can get away with something as informal as writing your former name on a piece of paper, along with your new name and then writing that both are "one in the same."
In addition to providing the DMV with this paper, you will also need to release your title as the seller (using your former name) and then sign back on as the buyer (with your new name).
Because minor details might vary from county to county, you should call ahead before you make the trip. Keep in mind that fees may vary and that it's worth checking out ahead of time whether your county views the name change as a title transfer.
You can also inquire with the State's vehicle titling department by calling (208) 334-8649 or with Vehicle Registrations at (208) 334-8649
