Moving to a new area is demanding but can be exciting. Aside from all the other things you must do, up-dating your address with the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles is important to make certain documents like your license and registration reflect the updated information. In Virginia, you are required to update your address information within 30 days.
To change the address information that appears on your driver's license or ID card, you can choose one of the following options:
Using the VA Online services portal and entering your license or social security number and data of birth to begin
Over the phone by calling (804) 497-7100
In person by visiting your nearest DMV service center
By mail using the ISD-01 form and mailing to Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles, PO Box 27412, Richmond, VA 23269
If you are moving to Virginia from another state, your out of state license will be canceled and you will be required to visit a DMV location. Existing Virginia residents are not required to obtain a duplicate license or ID but they will receive, by mail, a change of address card for free.
