    Changing Your Address in Georgia

    When you move to a new location in Georgia, you may need to update your address with the Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) or the Georgia Department of Revenue (DOR) Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) if you hold any of the following documents:

    • GA driver’s license or ID card.
    • Georgia vehicle certificate of title.
    • Vehicle registration card.

    GA Driver’s License/Permit/ID Card Address Change

    In Georgia, you must notify the GA DDS of your address change within 60 days of moving if you have a valid GA driver’s license or ID card.

    NOTE: If your GA driver’s license has been suspended, canceled, or revoked, you will not be able to update your address. However, you can apply for a GA identification card or limited permit showing your new address.

    You can change your address on your GA driver’s license, permit, or ID card online or in person at your local GA DDS office. You cannot change your address by mail or phone.

    You are allowed 1 free address change for each term of your driver’s license (as long as it comes at least 150 days before you are set to renew). If you change your address more than once during a term, or within the 150 days, you will be required to renew your license and pay the appropriate renewal fee (please see “Fees to Change Your Address” below).

    Visit our page on Renewing Your License in Georgia for more information.

    NOTE: If you would like your P.O. Box to show on your GA driver’s license, permit, or ID card, you still must provide a residential address to the GA DDS.
