Name Change Package
Includes Forms for:
- Drivers License
- Vehicle Title
- Voter Registration
- US Passport
- Bank Notification
- Credit Card Notification
- Insurance Notification
You must inform the Division of Driver Licensing and the Division of Motor Vehicle Licensing, both administered by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. That way your name change will be reflected on your driver's license (or ID card), vehicle registration, and title.
When you change your name in Kentucky, you have 10 days to notify the Circuit Court Clerk in your county.
Be sure to bring:
- Proof of residency. This may include a utility bill, a mortgage document, a deed or property tax bill, a postmarked letter containing your name and current address, or a rental housing agreement.
- Proof of your name change. Depending on the circumstance, this may include a court order, a marriage license, or a divorce decree.
- Your new Social Security card, proving to your County Clerk that you've updated your name with the Social Security Administration.
- Payment for $12 duplicate license fee.
In Kentucky, you can take care of title and registration name changes at the same time―as long as there's no lien on the vehicle. Simply take your current title and registration to your local County Clerk's office and they'll update it for you. Fees are between $12 and $16.
Any liens on your vehicle must be cleared before you can change your name on your title and registration.
