Alabama Car Registration Change of Address

Have you recently moved to a new residence in Alabama? You will need to change the address on your car registration to keep it current. Select from the options below to get started.

1: Get Started with Online Application Assistance

Online application assistance can simplify the process for many DLD related services for a fee, 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 DLD offices or websites, you will receive value added products such as a comprehensive Easy Guide containing information relevant to your service needs. Where possible, we will prepare your DLD forms and/or provide links to DLD online services. You will also receive 30 days of both emergency Roadside Assistance and the Repair Assist consultation service from Road America. Other benefits include an ongoing monthly newsletter and a quarterly magazine covering important updates that affect drivers, important safety tips, trends, legislative updates and ways to save money on vehicle-related services.

2: By mail

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

3: Via a DLD office

If you prefer to access DLD 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 DLD office location. Varying DLD offices sometimes supply different types of services so you will need to check before your visit to make sure the DLD closest to you provides the service you require. In addition, you can call to see if your local DLD allows you to make a personal appointment. Read more below to see if an in-person visit is either preferred or required.

And it's not just about adjusting your address at the post office. It's also crucial to notify the Alabama DMV of this alteration, because there are a number of documents and cards that you're going to have to modify as well. One such document is your car registration. As it is crucial for you to know when registration renewal hits, you want to make sure such a notice comes to the appropriate address. And all you have to do is visit one of the state's DMV locations and make the change in person. Find your nearest driver's license office here.
