Name Change

The individual names that appear on the certificate of title or registration can be corrected or changed. Please send your written request specifying a name change, along with proper legal documentation that supports the request, such as:

  • Marriage certificate
  • Certificate of domestic partnership
  • Divorce decree
  • Certified court order
  • Death certificate

Names can be removed from a title or registration only when the following apply:

  • The customer on the title is deceased
  • The person requesting the change provides a written request and a copy of the death certificate

Please fax your written request and the proper legal documentation to 949‑754‑4820.

The documentation required for each state varies. Once we receive the written request and proper legal documentation from you, we will submit this information to the Department of Motor Vehicles to begin processing your request. You will be notified if your state’s DMV requires further action on your part. Please be prepared to pay any fees associated with this transaction. Fees and processing time vary from state to state. If you have questions, please call us at 1‑800‑289‑8004.
