Change of Name on Massachusetts Car Registration

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

1: Get Started with Online Application Assistance

2: By mail

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

3: Via a RMV office

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