An individual whose name changes from the name stated on a driver license or ID must notify the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles within 60 days after the change occurs and obtain a duplicate card with the new name.
Name changes must be completed at an NCDMV driver license office and you will need to make an
appointment for this service. Please be sure to bring a fee of $14 and the following with you:
- A certified marriage certificate issued by a government agency
- Documented proof from the courts or the Register of Deeds establishing that the name change was officially accomplished
- Execution of a notarized DL-101 (obtained from an DMV office)
All documentation must be provided by the appropriate government agency of the United States, Puerto Rico, U.S. territories or Canada.
