Of course, also be sure to bring either cash or a check to pay the $4 license fee, or the $6 state ID fee. And you'll need to surrender your current photo ID.
Once you've changed the name on your license, the new information enters the DMV system. Thus, the next time you receive a registration or title, the correct information will be shown.
If you'd like a corrected title or registration before that, request an updated document at the service center. If you want the title changed, bring the current title. It costs $5 per vehicle to have the changes made.
You may also apply for an updated registration or title through the mail for free. Just send the current title with a note requesting the name change to:
- Wisconsin Department of Transportation
- P.O. Box 7949
- Madison, WI 53707-7949
You'll be issued a corrected title and registration after about eight weeks.
