Driver License Division - Translated Documents

It is the policy of the Utah Driver License Division to accept translations of documents which are printed in foreign languages under the following conditions:

  • the translator is certified by a company, school, religious organization, or government agency, as having successfully completed a translator program; and
  • the translator has filed with the division, a copy of a certificate, which verifies the successful completion of a translator course, test, or program.

If you are wanting to be on our approved translator list fax the certificate to 801.967.9868. Your name will be put on the approved translator list on our website within one week.

If you are looking for an approved translator to translate your foreign document, visit our Approved Utah Translator List for a translator in your area and who translates your language.

NOTE: Having a notary attached, does not verify the authenticity of the translation or that the translator meets the qualifications of this policy by being properly certified. Also, now that translations are completed by certified translators, they no longer need to be notarized. All translations need to be original, word for word translations. NO extract translations will be accepted.

Fees charged for translation services may vary. You may wish to check multiple providers in order to find one that fits your needs. Please be aware neither the Department of Public Safety or the Driver License Division takes responsibility for services rendered or fees charged.
