How do I get a certified copy of my birth certificate?

A certified copy of your birth certificate is required when you first apply for a driver's license or identification card. The reason for the requirement is to verify that the information you give us concerning your full legal name, date of birth, etc. is correct. It also provides verification that you were born in the United States.

To obtain a copy of your birth certificate, contact the appropriate agency from the state in which you were born. You can search for a listing of vital records offices throughout the U.S. to find your information.

If you were born in Wyoming, visit the State of Wyoming Vital Records online or call the office at (307) 777-6040.
