Change Address on License
If you recently moved to a new residence within the state of Arkansas, you must report this address changing to the Office of Driver Services. The DMV allows vehicle drivers to make this notification effective in one of two ways: in person or by mail.
How to Change Address on Drivers Licenses in Person
The process of DMV address changing can be completed by stopping by a local driver licensing office with a filled out Change of Address Form. On this form, you must enter information such as your AR drivers license number, your vehicle number, your full name and your new residential address. Also include the issue date and expiration date of your license to drive.
When you are ready to do so, bring address change forms, along with your current drivers license, to a nearby Revenue Office. Once your documentation has been verified, your DMV records will be updated with your new address.
How to Change Address on Drivers License by Mail
In a similar manner, a vehicle driver can also change addresses via mail by filling out the Change of Address Form. After entering all the necessary details, send your completed form to the address below:
Driver's License Issuance
P.O. Box 1272
Little Rock, AR 72203
