You may request to change the sex designation on your driver license or ID card when you apply to renew or replace your existing card. To do so you must:
- Make the request in-person at a DMV office;
- Be qualified to renew or replace your current card;
- Surrender your current card;
- Submit a completed application;
- Pay the applicable fee; and
- Present one of the following documents:
- A DMV Change of Gender Designation Form (Form 735-7401);
- A certified court order of sex change;
- A U.S. government-issued birth record amended with the desired sex designation; or
- A U.S. passport amended with the desired sex.
You may also request to change your name as part of this request. To do so you must present proof of a legal name change.
NOTE: At this time because of system constraints DMV can only capture two sex designations, which are “M” for male and “F” for female. DMV understands that you may not identify as a male or female and wish to have a designation other than “M” or “F”. To respond to our customers’ requests DMV is undertaking the rule writing process, which will include public notice and opportunity for comment on a draft rule. These changes will take time; however, DMV is addressing the need for change.
