You're moving address

How to move your TV Licence to your new address

In most cases you can simply change the address of your TV Licence online, up to three months before you move. You just need your TV Licence number.

You can also update other details online at the same time. For example, you may have changed your name, email address or telephone number when you moved.

You can buy a new TV Licence online if you don't have a licence to transfer.

If you are not moving in straight away you can tell us the property is empty.
