In Connecticut there is no TOD form to ask for from the DMV.
Here is what needs to be done:
1. Locate the "Certificate of Registration" in your vehicle;
2. On the back there is a section called "Beneficiary Designation;
3. Complete that section with the name of your beneficiary, his/her driver's license number and address; and
4. Sign the form in the presence of someone who can witness your signature (NOT the beneficiary).
That is all you need to do. CT DMV does NOT need a copy. When your registration expires (usually two (2) years), you just follow the same procedure on the new one.
The passing of Title
When the owner of the vehicle dies, the named beneficiary takes the registration to the DMV within sixty (60) days of the death, along with their ID, a certified copy of the owner's death certificate and the owner's Title for the vehicle.
DMV will issue a new registration and a Title in the beneficiary's name without the need to visit the Probate Court, thus saving time and money.
