South Carolina makes it very easy to change your name or address on your driver's license or ID, vehicle registration, and vehicle title.
For all three documents, you'll need to submit an Application for Name and/or Address Change to the state's Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) within 10 days of legally changing your name. For a new driver's license reflecting the updated information, also submit an Application for S.C. Credential. For a new title, submit an Application for Certificate of Title and Registration.
Visit your local DMV in person with your current driver's license, title, and registration papers. Also bring certified copies of the documents showing your name change. These documents could include a marriage certificate, divorce decree, adoption papers, naturalization documents, or any other court order.
An updated Social Security card, reflecting your name change, is not required. But if you want to change your name with the Social Security Administration (SSA), visit the agency's site. Give the agency at least 48 hours to process your request.
You can also submit certified copies by mail, with the application and fees, to:
- S.C. Department of Motor Vehicles
- Alternative Media
- P.O. Box 1498
- Blythewood, SC 29016-0035
The Application for Name and/or Address Change even allows you to notify the state Election Commission of the change, make temporary or permanent address changes, or make other corrections to your driver's license, registration, or title.
The fee for an updated driver's license is $10, the updated title fee is $15.00, and an updated registration is free.
