Change Address on License
If you have recently undergone a change of address in the state of Kansas, then it is your obligation to report this address change to all of the important parties that you deal with on a regular basis. Some important parties to note include the US Postal Service, your utility company, your bank, your credit card company and the Department of Revenue in Kansas. While you may understand the importance of getting in touch with the first few parties, you may be asking yourself why it is so important to notify the DOR of your address changing. The reason is because this department handles the issuance of KS drivers licenses and other important driving documents. Therefore, to be sure that you receive all of their important correspondences, you must submit a Kansas DMV address change form.
How to Change Address on Drivers Licenses in Person
Your first option for completing an official address change with the Department of Revenue in Kansas is to complete the process in person at a local driver license office or county treasurer location. If you decide that this is the application method you would like to use, be sure to bring proof of your new residence and your KS residency, as well as your Social Security Number and proof of ID. For a complete list of documentation requirements, visit the DOR's proof of ID page.
How to Change Address on Drivers Licenses Online
If you would prefer not to change address on DMV documents in person, a more convenient option is to complete the process online. All you need to do is log on to your computer and visit the Department of Revenue's Change of Address on Driver's License page. Once logged in, you will be asked to provide information such as:
- Your email address
- Your Kansas drivers license number
- The last four digits of your Social Security Number
- Your date of birth
- Your name as it appears on your driving license
- Your new address
- Your mailing address, if different
How to Change Address on Drivers Licenses by Mail
The final option you have for submitting your address change request in Kansas is to fill out a Name or Address Change form and mail it to the following address:
Kansas Department of Revenue
915 SW Harrison St.
Topeka, KS 66612-1588
On this KS DMV address change form, you will have to provide your old address, your new address, your Social Security Number, your name and your signature.
Ordering a Drivers License Replacement
As mentioned before, performing a motor vehicle change of address does not automatically send you an updated drivers license with your new address. Therefore, in the event you would like to obtain a license to drive in Kansas that features your new information, you will have to apply for a KS duplicate drivers license through the Department of Revenue. Unless you are out-of-state, you will need to perform this process in person at a local DMV or county treasurer office by providing two identification documents from Section D of the proof of identity list and payment.
