Hey y'all,
Still need to get our new SC drivers' licenses, and the DMV says I have to have documention for my married name (like a marriage certificate) since my name has changed "since birth" EVEN THOUGH both my social security card and passport have my married name.

Any one else know if this is accurate?

Thanks.

PS: I searched the forum but couldn't find any answers to this question.

Yes you have to have either a marriage license or court document showing why your name doesn't match your birth certificate.....

How does one go about getting a copy of a marriage license? Contact the county where you were married?

Yep, that's the best way if you don't have it on file in your house.

If you were ever divorced, you also need proof of that, contact vital statistics office in the state of the marriages/divorces. I lived in SC for 33 years, moved to VA for two years, when I moved back I had to get a copy of a divorce decree from 1974 in order to get my SC license again. Crazy, because VA didn't require that, it is a state to state issue.

Just came from the dmv today. You either have to have a birth certificate OR a passport - not both. Also make sure you have your insurance card, proof of residency, social security card or W-2 (preferably fairly recent). If you are transfering the title to your vehicle, you have to pay taxes at the auditor's office first. You will need title for that. You can check out all the rules and get the forms in advance from the SCDMV website.
