Change of Name on Idaho Car Registration

Have you recently gotten married, divorced, or had to change your legal name? The Idaho DMV recommends that you change the name on your ID car registration as soon as possible. Select from the options below to get started.

1: Get Started with Online Application Assistance

Application assistance services can simplify the process for many DMV related services for a fee, including: renewing your license, applying for a license, registering a vehicle, replacing your license, changing your address and more. In addition to assistance in preparing official forms, the value added services and products you will receive include a comprehensive Easy Guide™ containing information relevant to your service needs; 30 days of both emergency Roadside Assistance and the Repair Assist consultation service from Road America. Other benefits include an ongoing monthly newsletter and a quarterly magazine covering important updates that affect drivers, important safety tips, trends, legislative updates and ways to save money on vehicle-related services.

2: By mail

Some drivers prefer to handle the renewal process by mail, rather than taking advantage of assistance services, visiting the DMV in person, or via available online services. Service by mail is available with limitations. Read below for additional details or visit your local DMV.

3: Via a DMV office

If your specific needs require an in-person visit, most, if not all, driver license services can be handled at your local DMV office. Varying DMV offices sometimes supply different types of services so you will need to check before your visit to make sure the DMV closest to you provides the service you require. In addition, you can call to see if your DMV allows you to make a personal appointment.




Name Change On Idaho Car Registration

In the event that you have changed your name while in the state of Idaho, it is very important for you to address this alteration on your car registration. As this piece of documentation is a form of identification for yourself as owner of the vehicle, you must make the change legally as soon as possible. The good news, however, is that you are given the option to alter your registration name in one of two ways. You can either send your request in by mail with proof of your identity along with your original registration, or you can go in person and engage in the process there. Just make sure to bring the same pieces of identification.
