Changing your address in Georgia

If you recently moved to the state of Georgia, or relocated to a new address within Georgia, you will need to file an address change. The first step in the change of address process is updating your address with the United States Postal Service. Once you have visited a post office in Georgia to change your address, you can then proceed with changing the address on your Georgia drivers license, which is the first step to ensuring all your credentials reflect your address change. If your current address does not match the address printed on your drivers license or ID card, you may face a fine or a penalty if you are pulled over in Georgia. Schedule a {DMV-C} visit in order to update your contact information as soon as possible. To expedite the drivers license address change process, bring proof of your new address to the Georgia {DMV-C}, along with your current ID. Once you have updated your {DMV-C} address change, contact your auto insurance provider, as your car insurance rate may need an adjustment.

Change Address on License

If you recently moved within the state, Georgia requires its residents to notify them of an address change either at a Driver Services (DDS) office or the Georgia Department of Revenue's (DOR) Motor Vehicle Division (MVD). The department provides a timeframe of 60 days to report a new residence.

However, there are certain instances when a driver may not be able to file a DDS address change in Georgia. If you have a suspended license, for example, you will not be able to update your address. The same applies for motorists who have revoked or canceled licenses.

How to Change Address on Drivers Licenses in Person

The GA DDS office gives drivers multiple options to update their state addresses with the department. In Georgia, you must complete an address changing in person or online. There is currently no available option to make this modification by mail or by phone.

When address changing in person, you must bring with you the necessary documentation to process your request, including proof of identity and proof of your new residence.

Acceptable proof of new residency includes:

  • A utility bill
  • A bank statement or official document from your financial institution
  • A mortgage or lease agreement
  • A professional license issued by a government agency
  • A medical bill
  • Your homeowner's insurance policy or bill
  • A letter from a homeless shelter confirming that you reside at that location
  • School enrollment forms or documentation
  • Your Voter Registration's Card with new address on it
  • Official correspondence with your new address on it
  • A medical card

Take note that each person is allowed one free DMV address change on license each term of his or her GA driver's license. In the event that you need to make an official address change more than once in a term, or within 150 days before you are set to renew, then you will have to renew your license and pay the associated renewal. Bear in mind that a drivers license renewal cannot be completed by mail.

One other aspect to note is that you can show your P.O .Box on your GA driver's license, but you still need to provide a residential address.

How to Change Address on Drivers Licenses Online

If you prefer to change your address online, there is a set of criteria a vehicle driver must meet. First, you must create an account to complete the process. Thereafter, you will be deemed qualified to use the online system if you are a U.S. citizen, a Georgia resident, have updated or created an online service account on or after the date of June 1, 2013, and you aren't renewing a Georgia commercial drivers license. After paying the necessary fee online and completing your online transaction, you will receive a new Georgia drivers license or GA ID with your new address. Allow 10 business days for delivery of your new credential. If you do not receive your renewed license on time, contact the Georgia Department of Driver Services.
