I danced for joy when this dropped through my letterbox earlier this week. I’d heard a few horror stories about the DVLA rejecting self made deed polls like mine but they accepted it without question. It’s free to change a name but if you want to change your photo at the same time it’ll cost £17 (but that extends the expiry by 10 years). While it will be a while before face the ultimate test of the Passport Service as I will need some paperwork from the gender clinic to change my gender on my passport.
Now to look into a day trip to Glasgow!
