- marriage certificate
- change of name certificate
- birth certificate showing your name at birth and your new name
- divorce document showing the name you're changing back to
- your licence card and registration papers (if applicable)
- the PDF form – 'Replacement Application' if you need a replacement product such as a driver licence card, or
