My address on my license doesn't match my insurance card. Is that ok?
I updated my auto insurance for my new residence but I wasn't sure if I needed to update my driver's license as well. I stayed in the same city but just moved to a different part of town.
Thank you for reaching out to The Zebra!
First of all, your insurance policy and your driver's license (as well as your vehicle registration) should use the same address. Depending on which insurance company you have, that will determine how quickly you should get this taken care of, but generally it's around 30-60 days. In the state of New York, you'll need to report your new address to your DMV in order to get your license updated. You can do so here. Good luck!
