Michigan Drivers License Address Change Information

It is Michigan state law to update your address as soon as you move. This address must also match the one on your voter registration card. If you fail to update your address with the Department of State, your license can be taken away or suspended. The other important reason for keeping a current address is because important notices about your driving record or drivers license will be mailed to your address on file. When it's time to renew your Michigan license, a notice will be mailed to you.
