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 who have not moved but need to change just the mailing address on their valid North Carolina driver license or ID should call the NCDMV Customer Contact Center at (919) 715-7000, or send a message to NCDMV.
