Easiest way to change ownership of a car?

My boyfriend at the time said he would give me his car, but we have broken up since and I don't want the car anymore. He has sent me over the logbook and the car he is now driving still is under my name when it was previously in his name, so my question is how do I get it back under his name? I have tried looking online and can't find anything. I have the logbook; does he just need to fill in his details and send it off then?

Thank you

Hi Nikita,

Sorry to hear about the break up and, can we just say you’re being exceptionally nice in giving back the car. It should be pretty straightforward, and there’s no cost involved. Every vehicle should come with a Vehicle Registration Certificate. Simply fill that in with your ex’s details and send it off the the Driver and Vehicle Computer Services Division, in Shannon.

That should take care of it.
