We're upgrading our systems to better secure your information. All vehicle and driver licensing offices will be closed August 31 – September 3, 2018. Some online services will be affected before and during the new system launch. We encourage you to complete your transactions now, in our offices or online.

Change your address: Driver license and ID card

REAL ID Act

Starting July 1, 2018, all standard cards will be marked with language to indicate they're not valid for federal identification purposes. You may continue to use your marked or unmarked standard card for boarding airplanes and accessing secure federal facilities until October 1, 2020. Enhanced driver licenses and ID cards meet federal Real ID requirements and won't be marked.

Things to know

  • You have 10 days after you move to change your address on your driver license or ID card.
  • There's no cost to update your address. There is an additional fee for getting a new card with your updated address on it.
  • Updating your address on your driver license doesn't change your address on your vehicle. You'll need to do that separately.
  • If you want to see what addresses we have on file, log in or sign up for a License eXpress account.

Overview

  2. Decide if you want a new card
  3. Update your vehicle address, if needed
  4. Update your Good To Go! account, if needed

1. Change your address online

You have 2 options to change your address online:

2. Decide if you want a new card

  • If so, go online to request a new card. It’ll still have your current photo. If you want a new photo, you can have one taken for an additional fee at a driver licensing office. Be prepared to wait in line. See Tips for visiting an office: Driver licensing offices.
  • If you don't want a new card, you can wait until you renew your license or ID. This means you won’t be able to use your card as proof of your new address.

3. Update your vehicle address, if needed

If you haven't already, you may need to change your address on your vehicle registration.

4. Update your Good To Go! account, if needed

If you have a Good To Go! electronic tolling pass, be sure to update the contact information on your account with the Department of Transportation:
