Change Address on an Existing Georgia Driver’s License

If you are an existing Georgia driver and change your address within Georgia, you have 60 days to update your license.

How Do I … Change my Address on my Georgia Driver’s License?

  • Get Prepared

    Make sure your new address has been registered with the United States Post Office (USPS). The Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) will verify your new address through USPS.

  • Gather What You'll Need

    • Current Georgia driver’s license
    • 2 approved documents proving new residential address, if you are visiting a customer service center (if you have a Real ID driver’s license, you only need 1 document) 
    • License fee, paid for in cash or by credit card. If you are changing your address more than once during the term of your license, you may be required to pay a fee or renew your license. (Check fees and terms for more information.)
    • Completed online application form (for in-person visits)
