Description: If you change your name or address, you must update your Queensland driver licence within 14 days. Find out how to arrange this.

If you hold a Queensland driver licence, you must tell the Department of Transport and Main Roads within 14 days if you change your name or address.

When you tell us that you have changed your name, address or gender, all products you have with the Department of Transport and Main Roads in your name will be updated, including your:

  • driver licence
  • marine licence
  • industry authority
  • adult proof-of-age (18+) card
  • ship registrations
  • vehicle registrations.

We have a database of valid addresses that is provided by Australia Post. It is based on their delivery address database and is updated every 3 months. Some new addresses may not yet be in the database. If your address isn’t in the database, you won’t be able to update your address online.

If your address doesn’t match any of the addresses in the database, it might be automatically corrected. You should use the address shown on an official bill such as your rates, electricity or phone bill.

If you are the holder of a Queensland licence you cannot have an interstate residential address but you can have an interstate postal address.

When you notify us of your new home address, always write or say your address exactly as it appears on your household bills (e.g. your rates or electricity bill).

Once you have advised us of your change of address, within 10 working days you will get a label showing your new address to put on your licence.

You can update your address details online. When you tell us that you have changed address, your residential and postal address will be changed for your:

  • driver licence
  • vehicle registration
  • marine licence
  • industry authority
  • adult proof-of-age (18+) card
  • recreational boat and personal watercraft registration.
  • you need to change the address of a business or organisation
  • your garaging address is different to your residential address
  • you change to an address that isn’t a valid address, as provided by Australia Post.

If you have changed your gender, you must submit a letter on a consulting psychiatrist's or psychologist’s official letterhead stating the following or substantially similar:

This is to certify that (new name), (new sex), formerly known as (previous name), (previous sex), has been undergoing treatment on a gender re-assignment program and should now be regarded as permanently (new sex).

Your replacement licence with your new name and gender will be sent out to you. There is no time restriction for notifying a change of gender.
