Change it before you get pulled over or stopped and you should be fine. But your DL should reflect your legal name (i.e. the name on your SS card.)

Agreed, your DL should be your legal name.  No idea where “EDD” is tho!  Different places have rules for when it should be changed by, where I live it’s 60 days… where I used to live it was 6 months.  Usually they have it for address changes too.. but  I’ve never heard of a penalty for it, though I imagine some places there’s some statue so they can add it with other charges if you really do something wrong.

Just go get it changed ASAP!  Maybe call before you go on the off chance there a fine so you’ll be prepared, though I’ve never heard of it in the US.
