    I know you didn't change your name, but I think you would still use the application form the officer advised you use. You just change it to the name from what is on your licence to your full name.

    Hi there!

    This thread should be in the Cars and motoring forum. I'll just tag AngryJellyfish to get this moved over there

    That officer said I have to fill the "Change of Name application" of "NSW Registry of Birth,Deaths and Marriages " If my name was not changed,how can I fill that form and Why?

    When you say "NSW", do you mean New South Wales in Australia?

    It's possible the person you spoke to either misunderstood the query, or didn't have the correct answer.

    I'd suggest putting the query in writing -- hopefully there's on email address or online form you can use to submit a written query. If nothing else, you'll probably have someone different deal with it.

    If I were in your situation, I'd write something like this:

    Hi

    I need to get the name corrected on my driving licence.

    My legal name is WWWWW XXXXX YYYYY ZZZZZ. This is the name that appears on my birth certificate and passport. I have never been known by any other name.

    However, on my driving licence my name appears as WWWWW XXXXX ZZZZZ. I believe this may be because I filled in the application form incorrectly.

    I would like to get my driving licence corrected to show my full name WWWWW XXXXX YYYYY ZZZZZ. Can you tell me what I need to do for this to happen.

    Thanks.

    (I would making reference to any non-government paperwork. I suspect that simply the assertion that your birth certificate shows your name and that you've never changed it should be enough for them to not need a "change of name" process. Also, I'd suggest avoiding the word "change" in your email, and use the word "correct" instead.)

    https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/transaction/change-or-correct-personal-details-roads-and-maritime-services appears to have relevant information.

    I guess this shows the risk of not using your full name on government paperwork. I find it odd that you'd manage to miss out one of your names!
