My name has changed, how do I update it on my license or ID?

You will first need to be sure your name is updated with Social Security. Our system checks against Social Security, and if the name does not match, we cannot proceed with the license update.

Once your name is updated with Social Security, you’ll need to bring your current license or ID along with the CERTIFIED name change document (marriage certificate, divorce decree, or court order). 

Keep in mind that a new photo is required with name changes!
