How to Change Address on Car Registration in Person
Drivers in Alabama wishing to make an address change request on their car registration can do so by visiting a local license plate issuing office. In order to successfully make an address update request with the AL DMV, follow these steps:
- Visit a local license plate issuing office
Provide proof of identity:
- Drivers license
- ID card
Provide proof of updated address:
- Utility bill
- Lease agreement
- Insurance card
- Voter Registration card
- Property tax receipt
Pay applicable fees
- Fees for a duplicate car registration in Alabama vary depending on the type of vehicle being registered. The applicable fee must be paid on an annual basis in order to ensure that your car registration remains valid.
Once you submit an official address change request with the Alabama DMV, the DMV will update all your records that apply to your motor vehicle. However, if you choose to hold on to your original car registration documentation and only request a duplicate drivers license, then two different addresses will appear on the document. Nonetheless, your car registration will be updated in the DMV’s system to your new residential address.
