You can change your name on a driver's license, ID card, or permit by going to a local DMV office with the following materials:
- Proof of identity: one must show the current name you have on record with the DMV, and the other must show your new name. If you're unsure what DMV considers as valid documents for proof of identity, visit their website for a list of acceptable documents.
- The appropriate fees. Changing your name on your license typically costs $26.50. DMV offices only accept checks and cash.
You must notify the DMV within 30 days of the change.
Note: If the DMV doesn't have a photo of you, you must provide an official document with photo identification. A passport, military ID, out-of-state driver's license or ID card, or immigration document with photo can serve as valid photo identification.
If your name changes legally, state law requires that you correct the information on your title and registration within 30 days. Take the following five steps to apply for a title with your new name:
- Turn in your current title.
- Complete the Request for Correction of Title Records form.
- Pay the $77 fee.
- You must write on the application a statement of identity. Something like "John Doe and John Smith is the same person due to legal name change" will be sufficient. DMV often finds it helpful if you include copies of your driver's license.
- Take your completed materials to a local DMV office or mail them to the following address:
- Oregon DMV
- Attn: Corrections Desk
- 1905 Lana Ave NE
- Salem, OR 97314
Changing your name on your title automatically changes it on your registration as well. You should take the steps above to apply for a title in your new name.
