Name Change on Title

Individual names on a certificate of title can be changed or removed. To request a change:

  • Visit your local Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to initiate the request. Depending on the change, please submit the appropriate supporting document(s).
    • Marriage certificate
    • Divorce certificate
    • Petition for a name change
    • Certificate of domestic partnership
    • Certified court order
    • Death certificate
    • State-issued identification
    • Notarized affidavit of same name statement
  • If the DMV requires a copy of the title, an electronic screen print, or an authorization letter to complete your request, we will need to receive a written request from you or the DMV.
  • If the DMV requires the original paper title to complete your request, we will need the DMV to request the title from us in writing. (Converting an electronic title to a paper title may take 4 – 6 weeks depending on processing time.)
