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 as well as a 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 with a valid North Carolina license or ID who only need to change their mailing address should call the NCDMV Customer Contact Center at (919) 715-7000, or send a message to NCDMV.
