Address Change

YOU MUST NOTIFY THE DEPARTMENT OF SAFETY AND HOMELAND SECURITY OF A CHANGE IN ADDRESS

You are required to notify the Department of Safety and Homeland Security of any address change within 10 days of that change. This includes when you physically relocate or address changes made by the United States Postal Service or your local 9-1-1 Emergency Communications District when you have not physically relocated.

Notifying postal authorities will not provide the information to us. By failing to notify us, you could miss the renewal date of your license. The law does not require the address to be changed on your actual license, just on our files. There is no fee to change your address in our system. 

How to Notify Us of Your Change of Address

Your license must show your legal residential address. A post office box will not be accepted as a residential mailing address. If your change involves a name change, you will need to visit a driver service center.

Online through e-Services:

  • Visit the e-Services portal and complete the required information fields by clicking here.
  • Select "Change Your Address" from the list of available services and follow the promts.
  • If you would like a license that reflects changes made, return to the list of available services and renew your license or order a duplicate license if you are not within your renewal period. Once the transaction is complete and any assoicated fee is paid, a new license will be mailed to your updated address. 

At a Self-Services Kiosk:

  • Find a Self-Service Kiosk near you by clicking here.
  • Follow the kiosk's on-screen promts to update your address.
  • If you would like a license that reflects changes made, begin a new transaction and renew your license or order a duplicate license if you are not within your renewal period. Once the transaction is complete and any assoicated fee is paid, a new license will be mailed to your updated address.

By mail:

To update your record with your new address by mail, you will need to provide the following information:

  • Full name
  • Date of birth

After we receive your information, your driving record will be updated within approximately 15 business days.
