Applicants requesting a name change when applying for a non-commercial license, a commercial license, a provisional license, a permit or an identification card must present proof of the name change.
The documents presented must be the original or certified copies. The following are acceptable documents for changing a name:
- Marriage License
- Court Order
- Divorce Decree
- Birth Certificate
NOTE: Generally, the Birth Certificate is used when someone is correcting an error in the way his or her name appears on the license. Example: Current license shows name as “Daniel J. Martinez.” Applicant is requesting that name appear as on Birth Certificate – “Jose Daniel Martinez.”
