Pros: Once your license is registered the name change is official, no other legal paperwork to file, fees to pay, etc. (I want to say this is how they do it here in Florida, btw.)

Cons: If you’re on the fence about changing it or which name you’re dropping (middle vs maiden, for example), changing it after the fact could be a major headache.

I would think that this doesn’t really do much for changing your name, you still have to go to SS for a new card and the DMV for a new license.
