Pennsylvania Drivers License Change of Address

Have you recently moved to a new residence in Pennsylvania? The state Driver & Vehicle Services (DVS) requires you to process an address change on your Pennsylvania drivers license within 10 days of your move. Fortunately, all you need to do for a Pennsylvania drivers license change of address is to notify your local DVS. Select from the options below to get started.

1: Get Started with Online Application Assistance

Online application assistance services in Pennsylvania can facilitate the processes involved in many DOT related services by providing invaluable information and step-by-step instruction on how best to proceed. Whether you are looking to renew, replace or get a new PA driver’s license or ID card, online application assistance services can help with these and many more. Other benefits include one-click access to an entire inventory of official Pennsylvania forms and publications, as well as other useful PA resources.

2: By mail

Some drivers prefer to handle the renewal process by mail, rather than taking advantage of assistance services, visiting the DVS in person, or via available online services. Service by mail is available with limitations. Read below for additional details or visit your local DVS.

3: Via a DVS office

If your specific needs require an in-person visit, most, if not all, driver license services can be handled at your local DVS office. Varying DVS offices sometimes supply different types of services so you will need to check before your visit to make sure the DVS closest to you provides the service you require. In addition, you can call to see if your DVS allows you to make a personal appointment.




Regardless of which method you choose, the first thing you want to do is download your form and checklist to ensure you have the right documentation to process an address change on your Pennsylvania drivers license. Drivers may process an address change by mail or online.

By Mail

To change your address by mail, complete an application for a change, correction or replacement. This form can be obtained from your local driver license center in Pennsylvania. Once the form is filled out, all details are updated and corrected. 

The form must then be signed and mailed to the Bureau of Driver Licensing at this address:

Bureau of Driver Licensing
P.O. Box 68272
Harrisburg, PA 17106-8272

Online

To change your address online, go to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation website. You will need certain documentation, including:

  • Current drivers license number
  • Date of birth
  • Last four digits of your Social Security number
