As of November 30, 2018, the Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles will issue an M, F, or X on a Colorado ID or driver's license upon receipt of a form signed by a medical or behavioral healthcare provider.
If you are updating your legal name, you must first obtain a court ordered name change, then change your name with the Social Security Administration and wait at least 24 hours for the SSA system to update before you are able to change your name on your Colorado license or ID.
In order to update your name and/or gender on a Colorado license or ID, you must submit:
- Your application document or current driver's license or identification card;
- If changing your name, a court ordered name change;
- If changing your gender marker, a completed Medical Information Authorization form, signed by a medical or behavioral health professional and the applicant; and
- Renewal fee.
A new photo will be taken, and you will be issued a temporary driver license, identification card, or identification document. Your new driver license or identification card, or identification document will be mailed to you.
