    Summary: How to Change Your Name in Missouri

    To change your name on your MO driver’s license and registration, you’ll need to visit your local DMV office in person and provide proof of your name change, as well as payment for any replacement documents. You should consider replacing your driver's license and registration/titling documents to reflect your new name.

    For instructions on how to change your name with the Missouri Department of Revenue (DOR), continue reading this page.

    Change Your Name with the SSA

    In some states, the DMV requires you to change your name on your Social Security card first, before updating your driver’s license or car registration. Even though the Missouri DOR doesn’t have this as an explicit requirement, it may be a good idea.

    To change your name with the Social Security Administration (SSA), you’ll need:

    • A completed Application for a Social Security Card (Form SS-5).
    • Documents proving your:
      • Identity (e.g. driver’s license, passport, ID card).
      • U.S. citizenship, if applicable (e.g. U.S. birth certificate or passport).
      • Lawful U.S. presence, if applicable (e.g. work permit and I-94 print out).
      • Name change (e.g. court order, marriage certificate, divorce decree).

    Send or take the above documents to your local SSA office.

    The SSA will process your request and send you an update Social Security card within about 10 business days.

    NOTE: Only your name will have changed on your new Social Security card. Your Social Security number (SSN) will remain the same.

    MO Driver’s License/ID Card Name Change

    To change your name on your Missouri driver’s license or ID card, you’ll need to visit your local MO DOR office in person and apply for a duplicate card. You will need to:

    • Provide proof of your name change, such as your:
      • Marriage certificate.
      • Divorce decree.
      • Court order.
    • Have your photo taken.
    • Pay the duplicate driver’s license/ID card fee.

    You may also be required to present proof of your:

    • Date of birth.
    • Place of birth.
    • Social Security number (SSN).
    • Missouri address.

    For a complete list of accepted documents, visit the Missouri DOR website.

    NOTE: If your Missouri driver’s license is due to expire within the next 6 months, you may be able to renew it instead of getting a replacement.

    Car Registration & Title Name Change

    To change the name on your vehicle registration, you’ll need to first change your name on your certificate of title. To do this, visit your local Missouri DOR office in person and:

    • Submit a completed Application for Missouri Title and License (Form DOR-108).
    • Submit your current title certificate.
    • Provide proof of your name change (e.g. marriage certificate, divorce decree, court order).
    • Pay the $11 title fee.

    You may also be required to present proof of your:

    • Date and place of birth.
    • Social Security number (SSN).
    • Residence address in Missouri.

    For a complete list of documents that will be accepted, see the MO DOR website.

    Once you’ve updated your name on your title certificate, your registration will be changed also.

    Fees to Change Your Name in MO

    To change your name on your Missouri Department of Revenue (DOR) documents, you’ll need to pay the fee for duplicate copies.

    • Driver’s license/ID card: See the MO DOR website for fees.
    • Title certificate: $11.

    If you have any questions about fees and accepted payment methods, please contact the Missouri DOR.
