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
- Get a new or duplicate vehicle registration
Residents moving outside the state 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.
