Moving or changing your name means you'll have quite a few people and places to notify. This includes family members, friends, employers, and credit card companies. You'll also need to change your address with the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV).
If you are a resident of Louisiana and change your address for any reason, you must notify the OMV, in person, within 10 days of your address change. This can not be done online or by mail.
Changing the name on your driver's license or identification card must also be done at an OMV location.
Take your driver's license, proof of insurance, and the appropriate documentation that proves your legal name change, such as a marriage license or divorce decree.
The fee to change your name is usually $16, although it may vary depending on the OMV location. You'll be required to take a vision exam.
If your driver's license or identification card is within 90 days of expiring, you'll also be required to complete the renewal process.
Anyone younger than the age of 18 who applies to change the address or name on his or her driver's license or identification card must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
