Moving to a new place can be both exciting and stressful. In addition to all the other things you have to do, updating your address with Alabama's Driver License Division is important to make sure documents like your license and registration reflect the updated information. All states require that you update your address within a short time period after you move.
In Alabama, once you've moved to a new address, you'll need to notify the DPS Driver License Division within 30 days. You must send your full name, AL driver's license number, and new address to:
Driver License Division
P.O. Box 1471
Montgomery, AL 36104
Doing this will change your address on DPS records but will not result in being mailed a new copy of your license. Although not required, if you would like to request an updated driver's license or ID card, you will need to apply for a duplicate card in person at an Alabama DPS office.
In addition to updating your address information on your Alabama driver's license, you should also change your vehicle registration address. Contact a local Alabama DMV office that issues license plates, and let them know of your new address. If you'd like an updated certificate of title or registration showing your new address, you will need to apply for a duplicate. The Alabama Department of Motor Vehicles requires you to contact them to find out exactly which documents are needed. Click here for Alabama DMV contact information.
