    You can try to get things changed over without a translated MC...but don't be surprised if you get asked for a translated copy. Every place (agency, province, city) seems to be different.

      Changing my name was EASY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I didn't even wait for the 'official' documentation to come in.

      When we left Cuba we had an un-official license, I used said license to first change my

      #1. Drivers License

      WHEN the new DL came in with my new name on it, I headed to the Bank and had all my information changed there. It was one step, and I didn't need to present my marraige license, just my DL.

      I then headed to the OHIP (ontario health card) office, and along with my DL, my un-offical marraige licence, and my passport (in my maiden name) I changed my OHIP card.

      ................then I got in a car accident, another story entirely

      Shortly there after (6 months after the wedding) our official **all stamped up** marraige license came in.

      This is when I changed my Passport -- which I am still waiting to receive -- I sent a copy of my new DL, my new OHIP card, my birth cert., and my old passport to Passport Canada. When I spoke with Passport Canada, they said that I did not need to send my marraige license, but I sent a copy anyway (the lady on the phone said that it wouldn't hurt).

      EASY......

      Really, no marraige license translation at all!

        Yup...if you can get past MTO to get your DL changed then there should be no need to get your MC translated. I'm a slacker and STILL have not changed my name!! Maybe I'll go this Saturday & see if I can get away with using my spanish MC!

          The MTO people did not hassle me at all! OHIP was a different story because I still had an old red and white card!

              So...I finally went & got my DL changed today!! WOOHOO!!!!

              I tried to get it done without translating & I was able to!! I lucked out though - one of the workers spoke/read Spanish...otherwise I would have had to go get it translated first!! Now, I guess it's on to getting everything else done!!

                  I was going to go to the local multicultural center - if there is one in your area you could probably get it done there. I checked with an online company & they quoted me over $100!!! I've heard of people only paying like $35 or $40 - so you should shop around! :)
                  Good luck...and hopefully you won't need it translated!
