To change your name is easy.You need to just go to a solicitor, ask to change your name, It will be done via a document called a deed poll. You will sign it with the solicitor as a witness, and this document will allow you to change any other documents you have, like driving license, passport. It is advisable to have all documents in the same name. Saves questions and confusion for the authorities. There will be a fee for this service. Try to find a muslim solicitor. I wish you well in your reversion to Islam, and may Allah bless you greatly.
