AK Driver's License/ID Card Address Change

Updating your address on your AK driver's license or ID card can be done either in person or by mail. Or you can change your address online here or go
 to your local Alaska DMV office in person.

This will change your driver's license records only. If you would like a new AK driver's license or ID card showing your new address, you will need to apply for a duplicate. See our following pages for more information:

Car Title & Registration Address Change

You can change your address on your vehicle registration and title records either in person, by mail, by e-mail, or online. If your registration is within 3 months of its expiration you may want to change your address in person.

Once your records have been updated, you can either:

  • Cross out your old address on your current registration card write your new address in the space given.
  • Request a replacement registration. See our Replacing a Registration page for more information.

If you'd like an updated certificate of title, see our Replacing a Title in Alaska page.


To update your address on your vehicle records online, use the AK DMV's online registration address change system.

NOTE: You must have an Alaska driver's license or ID card linked to your vehicle to use this system.

  • Completed Notice of Change of Address (Form 401).

New Alaska Residents

If you're going to be driving in Alaska for longer than 90 days, you will need to apply for an AK driver's license. If you have a commercial driver's license (CDL), you will need to apply for an AK CDL within 30 days of moving to the state.

If you're bringing a car from out-of-state, you will need to have it registered with the Alaska DMV, even if you still have valid registration from your previous state.
