Change of gender

VicRoads record your gender and title. These details are recorded but do not appear on your licence and/or learner permit card(s).

Documentation is not required to change your gender

You may change your gender by visiting a VicRoads Customer Service Centre or contacting our call centre on 13 11 71.

Change of name and gender

A birth certificate issued by BDM (Births, Deaths & Marriages) for a change of gender does not contain any history of name changes. If you have changed both your name and gender you will need to visit a VicRoads Customer Service Centre (External link) in person to present an original letter of verification issued by BDM.

For further information regarding name changes, see Change of name (External link).

If you have changed your appearance, you will need a new photo taken at a VicRoads Customer Service Centre and you will be issued with a new learner permit and/or licence card. No fee is applicable for your new card.

Title change

You may also request VicRoads to change your title. Available titles include:

  • Mr
  • Ms
  • Mrs
  • Mx (gender-neutral title and may be used by any person).
