I got my SS number changed and then went right to the BMV and got my new license all in the same day. I had to actually bring my old ID, my marriage license and a paper from the SS office to change my drivers license but that could just be a state thing.

SS first, in most states you can’t get DL until you change with SS first.

I did my DL first, all I needed was a certified copy of my marriage license.  Same with the SS all they needed was my marriage license

@JemmyGee:  Was it the receipt that you got from the SS place that you brought to the DMV?? I thought I had to wait on the actual card but if I don’t then I want to get it taken care of asap. 2 months later and I’m STILL not officially Mrs. Y

@lindseyl06:  I had to wait for the actual card too, I think it varies from state to state

SS first (take a copy of your marriage license and original DL) – the SS office gave me a temp. card to take to the DMV for my DL
