In addition to all the other things you have to do, changing your address with the ND Department of Transportation is important to make certain documents like your license and registration reflect the updated information. All states expect that you update your address within a short time period after you move.
As a North Dakota resident, you are able to update your address information in the NDDOT database online. Driver's with an operator's license can update their mailing or residential address through the website but they will not receive a duplicate copy and are not required to obtain one.

They are required to visit a driver's license office and are also required to obtain a duplicate reflecting the updated address information.
