FL Title Name Change Procedure

To change your name on an auto title, do the following:

  1. Complete a Florida title application form.
  2. Find the original car title.
  3. Find proof of your name change (marriage certificate, divorce decree, court order).
  4. Go to a tax collector's office or license plate agency with the paperwork.
  5. Pay the $75.25 fee.

You're not required to put your new name on the title following a divorce, marriage, or other reason; it's fine to keep the title as is with your former name.

FL Title Correction Procedure

Just take the following steps:

  1. Find the title.
  2. The person whose name is being added or deleted to the title must sign the title.
  3. The original party whose name appears on the title must sign the title (if more than one name appears on the title and the names are joined with an "and" then both parties must sign the title).
  4. Visit a tax collector's office or license plate agency with the title.
  5. Complete a title transfer form.
  6. Pay the $75.25 fee.

You don't need a bill of sale form to change your name or make corrections on Florida vehicle titles.
