What is Form DL-64?
There may be an instance wherein your driver’s license or identification card has been lost, stolen, or damaged, and you need to apply for a replacement of your card. There may also be another instance wherein you move to a different address within Texas, and you need to have your address updated on your DL or ID card.
Whichever the case, in applying for a replacement or a change of address for your DL or ID card, you would need to fill out Form DL-64 or the Application for Change of Address or Replacement on Valid Texas Driver License (DL), Commercial Driver License (CDL) & Identification Card (ID) Form.
Am I required to submit this form?
You have to submit this form only if you need to have the address on your license changed, or you have to obtain a replacement driver’s license or identification card.
If you wish to have other details in your license changed, such as your name or ID photo, you do not have to fill out this form. Rather, you must visit your local driver license office for your application.
You also have to submit this form only if you opt to have your replacement or change of address done through the mail. If you choose to show up in the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) in person to apply for a replacement or change of address, you will be asked to fill out a different form instead (DL-43 Form or the Texas Driver’s License Renewal Application Form).
According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, you are eligible for replacement or change of address on your DL or ID card if you comply with any of the following:
- Your driver license or ID card is not expired.
- If your card has expired and you must change your address, apply for a DL or ID card renewal and indicate there your updated address.
- You are at least 18 years old and your license is not a provisional or learning license
- You are a US citizen
- Your social security number is on file with DPS
What if my new address is outside of Texas?
Form DL-64 is required for Texas residents only. If you are from Texas and you wish to update your address in your DL or ID card after moving out of Texas, then you would have to apply for a license card renewal in the state you are in. Visit your state’s driver’s license office for more information about their procedures for change of address of DL or ID card.
