What do I need to put my car in my name?
You will need proof of the name change in the form of an acceptable legal document, such as a birth certificate, marriage certificate, divorce decree or court order to give to your local motor vehicles agency office.
Do you need insurance to put a car in your name?
As the title strictly deals with who legally owns the vehicle, most states do not require you to prove that you have insurance on it or that you have a driver’s license. You can expect to fill out additional paperwork for the title transfer at the DMV.
Can you put your car in someone else’s name?
If you purchase a car for someone else, you have the option to have the loan in your name or to cosign with the individual you’re buying it for. The only way to buy the vehicle as a surprise is to put in the loan in your own name. The title may be registered under both names.
