Name Change

Is a Temporary License/ID issued when an address change or name change is made to the driver license?

A Temporary License/ID is issued when the customer makes a material change. The customer must wait to receive the new license by mail. Customer can retain the license or ID provided there are no changes other than the address. For address changes, there is no change in the procedure of notifying DMV of the new address.

How do I change the name(s) on a vehicle title?

The title to be changed must contain owner information that matches the owner information on the current vehicle registration. You must complete a registration application form (form #VD-119) providing an updated vehicle odometer reading and updated owner information. Each individual currently listed on the title must sign on the back of the title (as "sellers") and fill in the name of the "buyer(s)". If there are two owners you must indicate the relationship of the two owners.
