Relocating to a new place can be both exciting and stress filled. Along with all of the other things you will have to do, updating your address with the Texas Department of Public Safety is necessary to make certain documents like your license and registration reflect the updated information. The state of Texas requires that you notify the DPS within 30 days of the address change.
You are able to change your address information online, by mail, or in person. Whichever option you choose, Texas residents are required to obtain a duplicate license or ID which requires you pay a replacement fee. To change your driver's license or ID card address online you must:
Have a valid license or ID card (not expired, suspended or revoked)
Be between the ages of 18 and 79 (no provisional or learner license)
Be a U.S. Citizen with your social security number on file
Have a Class C or CM license (no Class A, B, or CDL)
Have a valid credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, Amex)
Be able to print your payment receipt and temporary license or ID
If you meet all of these requirements, you can visit TxDPS Renewal and Change of Address page. To complete your address change request in person or by mail, print the Application for Address Change form and visit a driver license office or mail to:
Texas Department of Public Safety
PO Box 149008, Austin
You must pay for your duplicate with a check or money order when sent by mail.
