One of the most common reasons for a person to have his/her drivers license suspended or invalidated is because they failed to respond and contest a Texas Department Of Public Safety (DPS) notice of suspension in a timely manner. The overwhelming majority of our clients claim that they never received the notice of suspension in order to request a hearing for their drivers license suspension. The number one reason why they never received the notice was because the address on file for the person was incorrect. DPS sends requests to the address they have on file. Therefore, if the address is incorrect, it is highly unlikely that the person will be able to receive and respond to the notice in a timely manner.

Usually, changing an address with DPS is a quick and inexpensive procedure. However, if a person’s drivers license is suspended, then DPS does not allow a change of address. Fortunately, DPS changed their procedure and now allows changes of addresses when a license is suspended. Please follow this link to DPS’s website to download and submit the proper form for change: http://www.dps.texas.gov/internetforms/Forms/DL-64.pdf

Making the change is fast and convenient and may prevent future miscommunication which could lead to costly and detrimental loss of driving privileges.
