Default Already Approved but Changing Address

I just got back from my 9th visit this past weekend. I was approved but will be moving from this address. I'm wondering if anyone knows if there is a process, we need to go through, to have my new address on file? Or does this even matter?
When my friend was in Forrest City he had placed himself in Protective Custody and we were not aware of the steps that applied to that circumstance (as far as visitation goes). I made a 5 hour drive, spent the night in a hotel, and was turned away because we didn't know the rules about PC visits.
I would hate to make an 8 hour drive (he is in Marion, IL now) and be told I can't see him because we didn't do something correctly!

Has anyone gone through the same thing? I would appreciate any/all feedback on this since I have already planned my next visit and want to be prepared!

No personal experience, but I have read where the address on your photo ID has to match with the one on your visitation application. Have him ask his counselor for confirmation.

My driver's license isn't needing renewal until next September. Should I go ahead and renew once I'm at the new address? Also, does he need to send me another approval application so the new address is "official?"

Most states have a requirement for the number of days after you move that you have until you have to report a change of address. For example, on the back of my AZ driver's license it says "You must report a change of address within 10 days". *EDIT-I just looked it up and it doesn't appear there's any requirement to do so in AR, but that's still what I would do.*

I moved when my ex was in the feds and I just called visitation and asked what needed to be done then I just brought in my new driver's license with the new address next time I visited and they got it changed for me.

Call the visitation room and ask what their procedure is.
