Name Change on a Title

Vehicle owners who change their name are encouraged to bring their vehicle title and registration to a Secretary of State branch office to have their name corrected on these documents.

All owners appearing on the face of the title must appear with identification. If an owner cannot appear, they may complete and sign an Appointment of Agent form designating another individual to sign on their behalf. The individual with the name change will need the document that changed their name, or their corrected driver license. The fee for a corrected title is $15. There is no fee to correct the registration.
