Driver's Licence Name Change

Driver's Licence Name Change


Driver's Licence Name Change

Driver’s licences & vehicle registrations are issued by the road authority from each state.  Make your driver’s licence one of the first documents to change as you can then use your updated license to prove your name has changed when dealing with other companies.

It is free to have your driver's license changed, but your old license must be surrendered. All states require your original name change document (BDM marriage certificate, divorce decree or BDM name change certificate). If you can't present a valid license when making the change you will be required to present a number of other identification documents and may need to pay a replacement fee. Some states also have proof of residency requirements.

Your name change should be requested in person, unless you live in WA where you can start the process by mail. Most state licensing offices don't allow you to make an appointment, so we recommend presenting at an office before 11am on a mid-week day if possible. Weekends, Fridays, lunch times and late afternoon are more likley to result in longer wait times.

Always check the full document requirements before attending a licensing office and ensure you have completed any forms correctly, otherwise you will have to make 2 trips. Easy Name Change can provide you with comprehensive document requirements for your state, including what to show if you can't present your current license, if you need to present proof of residency and the driver's license name change form for your state (if required).
