Texas Drivers License Change of Address Requirements
Have you recently moved to a new residence in Texas? The state Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) requires you to process an address change on your Texas drivers license as soon as possible. Fortunately, all you need to do for a Texas drivers license change of address is to notify your local DMV. Select from the options below to get started.
Online application assistance can simplify the process for many DMV related services, including: renewing your license, applying for a license, registering a vehicle, replacing your license, changing your address and more. In addition to the free forms and general instructions available from the DMV offices or websites, you will receive a comprehensive Easy Guide™ containing information relevant to your service needs. Where possible, we will prepare your DMV forms and/or provide links to DMV online services. Via our partners at Road America, you will also receive 30 days of both emergency Roadside Assistance and the Repair Assist consultation service. In addition, you will be able to take advantage of a free membership to DMV Advisors, a state-specific help desk prepared to answer any driver-related questions or concerns you may have. Other benefits include an ongoing monthly newsletter and a quarterly magazine covering important updates that affect drivers, important safety tips and ways to save money on vehicle-related services.
2: By mail, if eligible (see instructions below)
Some drivers prefer to handle the renewal process by mail, rather than taking advantage of assistance services, visiting the DMV in person, or via available online services. Service by mail is available with limitations. Read below for additional details or visit your local DMV.
3: Via a local DOT office
If you prefer to access DOT services in person or your specific needs require an in-person visit, most, if not all, driver license services can be handled at a physical DOT office location. Varying DOT offices sometimes supply different types of services so you will need to check before your visit to make sure the DOT closest to you provides the service you require. In addition, you can call to see if your local DOT allows you to make a personal appointment. Read more below to see if an in-person visit is either preferred or required.
