How to change your name on your license

If you have recently made any changes to your name, you will have to notify your state DMV office immediately and begin the process to make sure that your name is changed on the DMV file, on your driver license and/or ID card. This is extremely important due to the fact that your driver license or ID card represent a verification of your identity. If your name official legal name does not match with the name stated on your license or ID card, it will no longer be valid. This is why you will have to make sure to begin the process as soon as possible.
