Changing Your Name with DMV


Change of Address or Name

The following information was taken directly from the Colorado DMV website regarding changing you name or address:

To change your ADDRESS, you do not have to come to a Driver's License office or buy a new document. You may do any of the following: 

1) Click here to change your address on-line. You can then print your own label (for example, a return address label) with your new address and attach it to the back of your license or ID card. 

​2)  Download and print the change of address form (DR2285) from the state's website.

Complete the form and drop it in the mail or deliver to a driver's license office. You can then print your own label (for example, a return address label) with your new address and attach it to the back of your license or ID card. OR 

3)  Pick up a change of address form at a driver's license office. Give the completed form to a driver's license employee. You can then print your own label (for example, a return address label) with your new address and attach it to the back of your license or ID card. 

To change your NAME, you must come in to a Driver License Office and bring documentation showing your name change (please see Identification Requirements for acceptable forms of ID). You will be required to purchase another license or ID card. 

​Please Note: All name changes must be on file with Social Security before visiting a driver's license office. It takes at least 24 hours for changes to be processed with Social Security.
