Name Change in Arizona
Driver's License or ID Card
You must give all name changes to the Arizona Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) within 10 days of the change.
To begin, notify the U.S. Social Security Administration (SSA) of the change. Why? Because Arizona confirms that your Social Security number is linked to your new name before changing your Arizona record. In order to change your name you can download an Application For a Social Security Card (Form SS-5) or visit your local Social Security office..
Give the SSA several days to process your change. Then, head to an MVD office. Bring the document that establishes the name change, such as a wedding certificate, divorce decree, citizenship document, or court order. The MVD will accept originals or certified copies.
The MVD will issue you a corrected license for $12.
