Allow gays the right to have a driver's license with their married names.

When a straight couple leaves their home state to get married, they can return to their state and receive a new driver's license with the bride's new last name with no complications. A gay/lesbian couple does not have this courtesy. Florida does not not recognize gay marriage, but they should recognize a legal name change document from any state including a marriage certificate.
