Name Change

You Must Make Name Changes in Person

You must visit a Driver Service Center to make changes to your name. You will need your current license and the original or certified document showing the reason for the change; for example: An original or certified marriage certificate, original or certified copy of your divorce decree, or the original court order.

You will be charged a duplicate fee ranging from 8 dollars to 16 dollars. The fee will depend on the number of duplicates you’ve had and the type of license you have. All Certificate for Driving, Temporary Driver License and Temporary ID duplicates cost $19.50.

Remember all documents must be originals or certified. Faxes or photocopies cannot be accepted.

Required Documents for a Legal Change of Name

Legal Name Change or Divorce

As recorded in the court decree with judge’s original signature and/or official court seal.

NOTE:  Copy of court document with copied seal/ signature is not acceptable. Copy of court document with an original signature/seal that is affixed to copy is acceptable.

Marriage License/Certificate

Must include the applicant's full name and date of birth. The certificate must be the original or certified copy that is registered AFTER the marriage; NOT just the “license” authorizing the union.

Please Note: All documents are subject to verification with the issuing agency or source. Documents subject to verification may delay the issuance of your permit, driver license, identification only license, temporary driver license or temporary identification license.
