Register vehicle in joint names

Register vehicle under joint names for first time 

To register your vehicle in joint names for the first time all parties must attend a MVR office and they must bring evidence of identity and residency.

The MVR will then record both of you as a customer on the MVR database.

You can nominate who is to be named first on the registration certificate. 

MVR transactions and joint customers 

Once you have created a joint name registration in the MVR database, only one of the people named on the registration needs to attend the MVR for any future transactions.

You should also read the rules for joint vehicle owners and demerit points.
