Idahoans Can Change Sex on Drivers License Without Surgeon’s Note

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho Transportation Department has agreed to new regulations allowing transgender motorists to change the sex designation on their driver’s licenses without a surgeon’s note. In 2011, the agency began requiring a signed surgeon’s note signifying “a complete surgical change of gender.”

This year, two people were blocked from getting their driver’s licenses based on that policy. Through the American Civil Liberties Union, they complained, calling it an invasion of privacy. They also claim that in many instances, gender changes can be done without surgery.

The ACLU says Idaho’s highway department had no business asking prying medical questions. The agency will now require a court order or affidavit from a doctor attesting to a gender change. In Alaska, an ACLU lawsuit forced a change to that state’s rules in 2012.
