Changing Your Address in Alabama
Compare Insurance Rates in 3 Easy Steps
1. Start Your Quote:
Since driver's licenses are often used as official identification, it's important to keep the information on your Alabama license as accurate as possible.
If you move, you have 30 days to change your address with the state. Mail your change of address, your driver's license number, and your full name to:
- Driver License Division
- P.O. Box 1471
- Montgomery, AL 36102
To change your actual license, you will need to appear in person at your local driver's license office and pay $23 for a corrected license.
If your name changes due to marriage, divorce, or a legal change, you will need to appear in person at your local driver's license office with documentation showing the name change. Official documentation may include a marriage license, divorce decree, or the court order that shows the change. A fee of $23 will be charged for the corrected license.
