How do I update my No Licence Needed declaration?

If you made a No Licence Needed declaration at your old address and you’re moving home, it only takes a few minutes to let us know.

Let us know you still don’t need a licence or have no TV by telling us your:

  • title, initial and last name,
  • old address and postcode,
  • new address and postcode.

Update your existing declaration using our Contact us form (please include the above details).

You don’t need a TV Licence if you never watch or record programmes as they’re being shown on TV or live on an online TV service, and you never download or watch BBC programmes on BBC iPlayer.

Once we have received this information, you don't need to do anything else and we'll transfer your existing declaration to your new address.
