Changing my name through Deed Poll Watch
From Deed Poll UK Service I will pay additionally for the certified copies.
I'm just a little worried about the hassle it will take to tell organisations such as Student Finance, Passport office, Banks, Uni, DVLA .etc. about the change! how long will it all take? Has anyone encountered any problems changing their name through these organisations one the deed poll has been made?
- I have a provisional driving license, so would I just send them a letter with a certified copy of my deed poll, license card and a cover letter to them?
- Also, does anyone know if Lloyds & Santander bank require an enrolled deed poll? because I cannot afford to do that as I am only 19.
- Do I change my passport first?
-Lastly, would it be difficult to change my name at uni and affect any of my upcoming exams .etc.?? I have a student account with santander bank, so would I have to get a new student oyster card and the santander railcard in my new name too?
Sorry for the gazzillions of questions! But I would really appreciate the help! Thank you so much!!
you use your birth name for official stuff and then on your application you put known as, and the new spelling...
you could change it then work through a list and change everything over, or you deal with it.
I hate people saying my last name wrong but I just correct them and carry on.
