NZTA changes gender identity policy for driver licences

first_imgHuman Rights Commission – aka Fools 13 June 2013The New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) has changed a policy that will make it easier for people to amend the sex / gender details on their driver licence record.Previously, applicants first had to correct their sex/gender on their birth certificate. This is a costly and time consuming legal process that requires a trans person to provide evidence of medical treatments they have undertaken as part of their transition. The Commission’s 2008 Transgender Inquiry recommended that this process for amending birth certificates and other official documents, such as passports and drivers’ licenses, should be simplified.  This recognises that for financial, medical, cultural and other personal reasons, not all trans people will undertake medical procedures as part of their transition. Nor is it appropriate to require intersex people to undergo medical procedures in order to amend sex/gender details on official documents.http://www.hrc.co.nz/2013/nzta-changes-gender-identity-policy-for-driver-licenceslast_img read more
