After and Getting a Name Change Court Order, the next step I figured out I needed to do was update my driver's license. This is becauseGetting Additional Copies of the Court Order
- It must be done in person, which means you will not have to give up a copy of your name change court order.
- They do not take away your passport or other forms of identification while processing your request.
- It is the most commonly-used form of ID, so if you get lazy midway through updating your identification, you are mostly still set.
In order to get the updated driver's license, follow the steps listed on the official "Changing Your Name" ODOT webpage:
- Make an appointment at a DMV office;
- Present proof of your name change, proof of your identity and address; and
- Pay the applicable fee.
Note that if you want to get a "REAL ID", you will have to bring multiple forms of identification. It is worth clicking through to the link to figure out which ones to bring; I brought a current US passport and birth certificate, along with my current driver's license..
