About this site

What this site does

This site allows you to generate a deed poll which you can print off and use to change your name in the U.K. Most people will be able to use a deed poll generated by this service to update their name on their official documents and records, for example on their passport (with HM Passport Office), driving licence (with the DVLA), and with HMRC, the UKBA, and banks. However a deed poll generated by this service will not be suitable for everyone, and you may need to adjust the document to fit your own needs and circumstances.

This service allows you to generate a deed poll which can be enrolled in the Royal Courts of Justice. However it is not a legal requirement to enrol your deed poll, and doing so will not affect the legal status of your name in any way. Government bodies such as HM Passport Office do not require you to enrol your deed poll.
