Moving & Address Changes

Within 60 days of moving to North Carolina or moving within the state, an individual must:

  • Change their address with the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles
  • Get a new or duplicate license or ID ​
  • New or duplicate vehicle registration
Residents moving outside North Carolina must surrender their North Carolina license and license plate upon establishing a new permanent residence.

Individuals who have not moved but need to change just the mailing address on their valid North Carolina driver license or ID can do so online​ or at their nearest NCDMV office. The license can be destroyed, and the plate mailed to the DMV Vehicle Registration Section, 3148 Mail Service Center, 1100 New Bern Ave., Raleigh, N.C. 27699-3148. Please include a brief note about why it is being returned.
