If your Idaho car registration has been lost, stolen or destroyed, you'll need to get it replaced immediately. We offer links to resources that will save you time and get you going in the right direction. 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.

Idaho Car Registration Name Change

In order to complete an Idaho car registration name change, there are a few steps you must take first.

  • Make sure to change your name with the Social Security Office before you make any attempts to do so on the registration. Visit the SSA website to learn more.
  • Create a "one-in-the-same" form; each county may have their own form, but you can usually get away with writing your former name on a piece of paper, as well as your new name, and then writing that they are "one in the same"
    • If the county does have its own form, you will have to pick it up at the time of arrival
  • Original title and registration

Details vary from county to county, so it might be a good idea to check with your local office before making the trip. Make sure to ask what fees are due for this transaction to be completed.
