Name Change in North DakotaPage Overview
Any name change, regardless if it's by marriage, divorce, or artistic whimsy, requires notifying the Department of Transportation (NDDOT). The process is easy, fast, and inexpensive.
Contact your local North Dakota DOT to find out what documents you need to change your name on your vehicle registration and title.
You will need to wander into your driver license office and provide, depending on your name-change situation, a CERTIFIED copy of one of the following:
- A marriage certificate.
- A court decree granting a name change.
- A divorce decree or dissolution of marriage specifying the name change.
- A United States Department certificate of naturalization that's issued to you in your new name.
An updated Social Security card, reflecting your name change, is not required. But if you want to learn more about how to make the change with the Social Security Administration, visit the agency's site.
