Name and Address FAQs

What if I need to change my name?

Suppose the name from your driver license or identity card is different than the name on your identity document (e.g., birth certificate or passport.) In that case, it must be accompanied by legal documentation authorizing the name change. These include a certified state marriage certificate, divorce decree, adoption, citizenship, guardianship, or court documents indicating the name change.

How long do I have to change my address if I move?

Utah law states you must notify the Driver License Division of any change of address within 10 days, so you will receive any notifications we may send you. (State mail is not forwarded by the post office.)  If we do not have a current address, you may have sanctions on your license that you are unaware of. Address changes can be made online or at a Driver License office in the state. If you visit an office to change your address, you must bring two (2) proofs of residency with you.
