The Texas Department of Public Safety and the Address Confidentiality Program
The Department of Public Safety is pleased to participate with the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) in implementing requirements of the Address Confidentiality Program. The Department of Public Safety's role in this program is to provide assistance to victims of family violence, sexual assault and stalking by changing the address on their drivers license and/or identification card to the post office box provided by the Office of the Attorney General. Participants approved for the program must visit their local Texas Department of Public Safety driver license office in person to request a change of address and to present their Address Confidentiality Program authorization card. The driver license and/or identification card will then be mailed by the Department of Public Safety to the address authorized by the OAG. The Department's records will not contain the participant's actual residential address, only the post office box provided by the Office of the Attorney General.
Information on how to change the address on your driver license and/or identification card if you are approved as a participant in this program can be found on the Department of Public Safety's Web site.
