How Do I Change My Address on My Driver’s Licence?
If your address changes, by law you have to update your driver’s licence within 14 days. Save yourself from a potential fine and come in to any of our centres to make the change in person. When you do, make sure you bring:
- Your AMA membership card
- Your driver’s licence
Your Interim Driver’s Licence
The registry agent will hold on to your old licence and give you a temporary interim licence to use until your new driver’s licence arrives in the mail — that can take up to 21 days (three weeks). Your interim licence won’t have a photograph, so in the meantime we recommend you carry some other form of photo ID until your new licence arrives.
- If you renew your licence at the same time, you pay the renewal fee only.
- If you have vehicles registered in your name, we will reprint these with the new address at the same time for no charge.
- If you have not physically moved but your address has been changed by Canada Post (new postal code), bring the letter they sent you about this change to get the service free of charge.
