    So I moved about 6 months ago and forgot to update my driver's license to the new address. If I get pulled over in the truck, what will happen?

    See above answer. But when asked is that current address say but all my mailing goes to (my parents, girl friend,brother who over) and give your new address. So any mail such as court date will get to you.

    The address on my license is a UPS store address that I have never lived at.

    It’s not even zoned as residential.

    Got a funny look by the car salesman when I bought a used car locally two years ago and he saw that address. Didn’t question me further because I paid cash.

    it's correctable violation in Cali . $15 court fee and proof that you have updated it at DMV.
