12.130 Nontitle (Goldenrod) Registration With a Name Change

A goldenrod registration application must reflect the name of the owner as it appears on the nonresident registration card. However, both the previous and current values may be listed on the registration card. This provides continuity of ownership when the outstanding title is later presented and complies with DMV’s true name requirements.

The following must be submitted:

  • All registration requirements as shown in the Basic Registration Requirements section in this chapter with the exception of the title/ownership document.
  • A REG 256 with the Name Statement section completed.

Refer to the Nontitle (Goldenrod) Registration section in this chapter for additional information.
