Yes, you can create a new Apple ID and password, and reset the iPad to use your new Apple account information.

Expert:  Pete replied 27 days ago.

To create a new Apple account, go to:

https://appleid.apple.com/account

To reset the iPad and add your own account information, hold down the Home and Power buttons at the same time for 15 seconds whilst connected to a computer with iTunes.

iTunes will detect the iPad in recovery mode. Restoring the iPad using this method will make it like a brand new device.

Once it's finished you can sign in with your new Apple account.
