Change your name: Driver licenses and ID cards

REAL ID Act

Starting July 1, 2018, all standard cards will be marked with language to indicate they're not valid for federal identification purposes. You may continue to use your marked or unmarked standard card for boarding airplanes and accessing secure federal facilities until October 1, 2020. Enhanced driver licenses and ID cards meet federal Real ID requirements and won't be marked.

If you've officially changed your name and want it on your driver license, visit a driver licensing office and bring:

  1. Payment for the fee.
  2. Proof of identity:
    • A stand-alone or A-list document with your new name on it.
    • or
    • One of the following documents:
      • Marriage certificate or license (filed and certified by the court, not the original keepsake document)
      • Court order (filed and certified by the court)
      • Divorce decree (filed and certified by the court)
      • Original birth certificate.
      • Other court or legal actions filed and/or registered with the responsible governmental agency of the recording country, province, state, county, or city
