Mississippi Drivers License Change of Address 

Have you recently moved to Mississippi, or have you changed residences within the state? The Department of Public Safety (DPS) recommends that you update this information as soon as possible. We've collected information to help save you time when changing the address on your drivers license in Mississippi. Select from the options below to get started. 

1: Get Started with Online Application Assistance

Application assistance services can simplify the process for many DPS related services for a fee, including: renewing your license, applying for a license, registering a vehicle, replacing your license, changing your address and more. 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 DPS in person, or via available online services. Service by mail is available with limitations. Read below for additional details or visit your local DPS.

3: Via a DPS office

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




Changing Your Address on a Mississippi Drivers License

You must visit a DPS office in person to change your address on a Mississippi drivers license.

You may need to bring documents such as:

  • Social Security card
  • Proof of residence
  • Proof of identity
  • A birth certificate and other documents can also be used

Steps:

  • Locate the driver license office nearest you.
  • Bring your current license, along with proof of residency to prove your new address. This can be a utility bill, mortgage documents or a bank statement.
  • There is a fee of $5 if you change your address prior to the renewal of your license.

Make sure you go to the DPS office early to avoid the crowds and make sure you have all documentation with you. Changing your address for driver’s license in Mississippi is easy but you can only do this through the DPS office and not through the mail or online.
