My parents gave me four names – a first name, two middle names, and a last name. When I got my drivers license four years ago, the DMV put my second middle name on to my last name, but I never realized it as I thought it was just the way it was printed on my license. What should I do? I have my birth certificate
My parents gave me four names – a first name, two middle names, and a last name. When I got my drivers license four years ago, the DMV put my second middle name on to my last name, but I never realized it as I thought it was just the way it was printed on my license. What should I do? I have my birth certificate with all four names, but it does not distinguish between first, middle, and last names, and I'm worried that if I take that to the DMV when I renew my license and ask them to fix it, they'll think I'm trying to illegally change my name or something How should I proceed?
you often need proof of residency to get something changed or updated. how does it look when you receive stuff in the mail? or billing statements from banks or credit cards? if it just says your first and last name, bring those in.
if you have a social security card, that should also be accurate, and you can bring that in.
it depends on your state, and i'm sure if you look on google for miss printed name on your driver's license, you'll find some answers. always check your license before you leave the DMV when you get your new license.
Since you're not trying to defraud anyone with a phony name, take your documentation to the DMV and tell them you've just realized there's a mistake. After all this time, expect to pay for a replacement. (They might have done it free if you'd noticed right away.)
It will also be helpful to have some other indicator of your legal name, such as a school ID or report card.
If it were me, I wouldn't worry about it. Any cop looking at your license would see that one middle name was tacked on to your last name. When was the last time you heard that someone was arrested or got into trouble for the way their name was displayed on their drivers license ? However…….If you want it corrected, see your DMV and get it changed.
If you have your birth certificate and your credit card, maybe some other documents like a passport or just a phone bill with hour name on it, you should be OK at the DMV.
NOTIY the DMV they got your name wrong and say what it really is
Show birth certificate
Go back to the dmv
You notify the DMV, dummy.
