2. By Mail
Rather than get ahead with online assistance and services, some Georgia residents prefer to handle their DMV transactions via mail. Drivers can complete a few different procedures by mail, but payment methods are restricted, and the transactions have inconvenient and lengthy turnaround times for results.
3. Via a DMV Office
Certain transactions must be completed in person at a Georgia DMV office. However, before visiting a local branch, be sure to verify that the location offers the service you require. Not all DMV procedures can be completed at every location. Additionally, note that wait times are typically lengthy. So make sure to take advantage of online assistance to prepare for your visit.
If you are a Georgia resident and have changed addresses or plan to do so in the near future, you must have the address information updated on your license, vehicle registration and title certificate. You are also required to notify your insurance provider of your new address.
REPORTING A CHANGE OF ADDRESS TO THE DEPARTMENT OF DRIVER SERVICES
You must notify the Georgia Department of Driver Services of a change in address within 60 days of moving to a new residence, to obtain a replacement driver license. Reporting a change of address to your local driver service customer care center is simple, and can be done in person or online. If you are a commercial license holder or if your license will expire within 180 days of the change of address or if your address cannot be verified, apply in person at your local driver service customer care center.
Reporting an address change in person:
- Locate the driver service customer care center nearest you.
- Bring your current license. You will not need proof of residency.
- During the period of validity of your document you can make one change of address free of charge. If you do additional changes you must pay a renewal fee.
Reporting an address change via the Internet:
- You can report a change of address online by visiting Internet Services on the Department of Driver Services website and following the instructions carefully.
- There is no charge for change of address or replacement license if it is only done once during a renewal cycle.
- Your replacement license will be mailed to you within 30 days.
ADDRESS CHANGE ON YOUR VEHICLE TITLE AND REGISTRATION
- You must notify your local tag office of a change of address and have this information updated on your Georgia Vehicle Title and Registration certificate at the same time. This must be done as per the requirements of the county in which you reside.
- You will have to fill a MVD tag and/or title application form and submit it with the necessary documents.
- You can either report the change of address in person by visiting your local tag office, or via mail. You will have to check whether applying by mail is acceptable in your county.
NOTIFYING YOUR INSURANCE SERVICE PROVIDER OF AN ADDRESS CHANGE
- You must also notify your insurance provider of your change of address, so that you receive timely information regarding due dates for payments, renewals, and other communication.
- To save time and money, some Georgia drivers who change addresses choose to obtain a free quote for new auto insurance instead of changing the address with their current insurance provider. Not only does this save the hassle of contacting and notifying the current insurance company, but it could potentially save hundreds of dollars by identifying companies that offer lower rates and/or better coverage.
- If you are a non-US citizen residing in Georgia, and wish to have your address updated on your license, you must apply in person at a driver service customer care center. Please remember to bring appropriate proof of legal presence.
