To ensure your application process is as smooth as possible, remember to bring all required documents. Faxed or photocopied documents will NOT be accepted for any kind of document. All documents provided to the Division will be imaged and stored in a secure database and will be returned to the applicant. In some cases, document approval may not occur in the same day and may require an additional visit.
Non-English documents must be accompanied by a certified translation of the document. The translated document must be translated by one of the division’s approved translators. The original and the translation are considered one document for identification purposes.
If the name from your driver license or identity card is different than the name on your identity document (e.g., birth certificate or passport) 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.
