How to submit a fishing license name change

Different states may have different guidelines for submitting a change in fishing license name. However, all states require the name on your driver’s license or state-issued ID to match your fishing license.

For example, if you are getting married, you should contact your state agency directly to ensure that you are following the instructions specific to your state on changing the name of the fishing license.

It is important that the name on your fishing license matches your photo ID (e.g. a driver’s license). While each state may have different procedures, these are examples of the steps you should follow when making a name change for a fishing license.

By contacting your government agency and promptly filing your name change for the fishing license, you can rest assured that you will have your new license with your updated name ready in time for the fishing season. If you don’t already have a license, you can purchase your state fishing permit online now.

  1. Change your driver’s license or ID card to your new name.
  2. Coordinate the name change with your state fish and wildlife agency by calling them directly or contacting them via email. The government agency will likely ask you to mail, fax, or email a copy of your new driver’s license or other legal name change documentation.
  3. Make sure that if you have set up an online account with your government agency, that account is also updated with your new legal name.
  4. Once your customer account is updated, most states will replace or print your current hunting and fishing license with your new name, either free of charge or free of charge through the state agency’s website or by phone.
