What Do You Need to Bring When Changing Your Address on a Tennessee Driver’s License?

If you’re a new resident that wants to obtain a Tennessee driver’s license, you can’t have any outstanding suspensions, revocations, or cancellations on your out-of-state license. If this doesn’t pertain to you, then all you need to do is simply bring the following documents with you when you visit your respective Tennessee DMV: 

  • Your current out-of-state license
  • Proof of identity (two forms required)
  • Proof of Tennessee residency (two forms required)
  • Proof of U.S. Citizenship, Lawful Permanent Resident Status, or Temporary Legal Presence documents
  • Proof of social security number
  • Application for a Tennessee Driver’s License

How to Change the Address on Your Tennessee Driver’s License If You’re Moving Into the State

The state of Tennessee mandates that you register your vehicle within 30 days of moving in. You’ll need to visit your local County Clerk’s office to update your vehicle registration, which costs $26.50 for standard non-commercial vehicles. You’ll want to bring the items mentioned above, as well as the name and or address of the lien holder to whom you are making payments OR, in the event of no lien holder, your out-of-state title.
