Change Address on License
If you recently completed address changing, the Minnesota Driver and Vehicle Services requires residents to report this updated information, because the DVS sends important information regarding your driving privileges and vehicle registration. So, the address on your record must be up to date.
How to Change Address on Drivers Licenses in Person
In the state of Minnesota, you are required to apply for a drivers license replacement when you have an official address change. This process must be conducted at your local MN Driver and Vehicle Services office.
When you visit a Driver's License Office or Driver and Vehicle Services Exam Station, the photo stored in the system will be used to prove your identity. If there is no picture available, you will be asked to provide further proof of identification. You may present one primary form of identification - which must contain your full, legal name and date of birth - and one secondary form of identification.
Proof of primary documents include:
- A certified birth record.
- A certificate of birth abroad.
- A report of birth abroad of a U.S. citizen.
- A certified adoption certificate from a U.S. court.
- A valid U.S. passport or card.
- An unexpired active duty, reserve or retired U.S. military ID.
Proof of secondary documents include:
- Another primary document.
- A photo driver's license.
- A state identification card.
- A U.S. Social Security card.
- A certified government-issued marriage certificate.
If you have any questions regarding primary and secondary documents, contact the MN Driver and Vehicle Services office at 651-297-3298.
If your drivers license is soon set to expire, you may request a driving license renewal instead of a duplicate. The procedure to obtain a renewed driving license will also require you to visit your nearby DPS office with the proper documentation in hand. Make sure to have the aforementioned items with you, along with a valid form of payment for any necessary fees. If you have a copy of a police report with you, present this documentation to a DMV agent when renewing drivers licenses.
