From Deborah Fedorkowicz, R. N., Driver Wellness and Safety Division, Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration
During the transitional change, before the Courts can approve a permanent gender change, you may request that your driver’s license be changed to reflect your desired gender. To accomplish this, please submit the following to the Motor Vehicle Administration for review by its Medical Advisory Board:
1. A letter from you formally requesting a change in gender status.
2. A letter from your physician administering your hormone therapy and assisting you with any plans you may have for surgery. This letter should indicate the length of time you have been in treatment as well as a statement clarifying the doctor’s impression of your treatment progress and your prognosis for a favorable outcome.
3. A letter from your psychotherapist stating the length of time you have been in treatment, the assertion that you are committed to the change in gender, and the length of time you have been living in your desired gender.
Upon receipt of this information, the Medical Advisory Board will review it, and render a recommendation to the Administration. If your request is approved, you will receive a confirming letter. You may take the letter to any full-service MVA office, where a license reflecting your desired gender will be issued.
You may fax the reports to my attention at 410-768-7627. Please call 410-768-7176 a few days after the forms are faxed/mailed and ask the customer agent answering the telephone to alert me that your case is ready for review. Please have your soundex [driver’s license number] available at the time of your call, to expedite the process.
If you need additional information, or if there is anything else I might be able to help with, please don’t hesitate to call me at 410-768-7176 or DFEDOKOWICZ@MDOT.STATE.MD.US.
