Updating your driving license address with a new build

I’m a little busy at the moment so I’ll keep this one brief.

Recently moved to a new street and can’t update the address of your driving license online with the DVLA? It isn’t obvious but there is a workaround. Below is an example of what you may see when changing your address.

If like me you clicked “Other ways to enter your address” and got nowhere? You don’t need to do this.

Simply remove the house name or number and enter a valid postcode, any postcode at all. It can be your old address, your workplace, whatever then click on Next.

When you see a list of addresses at the postcode you entered, select “None of the above” and click next.

Enter your new address, click next and proceed with the process. That’s it! I’ve demonstrated in a video below.

  1. Hi
    I have seen your video that is quite helpful for me but when I enter the address in which I am living right now and 6 months passed and when they ask to give the address in which I have lived three years the didn’t except that of Italy so could you please help me to do that .

    1. Hi Faizan – It’s a good question and unfortunately one I don’t know the answer to. You may need to submit a paper form available at your local post office for this one. Regards, Chris.
