Changing Your Address

If you are planning to move and thus your residential address is changed, you must update your driver's license, the vehicle registration and the title certificate with the new information.

If you are planning to move and thus your residential address is changed, you must update your driver's license, the vehicle registration and the title certificate with the new information. You need to inform the DMV of the changes, and many states offer the possibility of doing it online or by mail. However, if you want to get a new license with the updated information, you must go to the DMV and do it in person. Aside from the DMV, your insurance provider must also be notified.

Address change on your driver's license

All you need to do is bring your current license along with a proof of your new address to the DMV. Some states issue new licenses, but some of them will just give you a certificate that verifies the address change, which you should carry with you at all times and you will be able to use your old license.

Address change on your vehicle title and registration

The procedure for changing an address on a vehicle title or registration is similar to the one regarding driver's licenses. You need to provide the DMV with a proof of the new address and the existing title and registration. You can report the change by completing an online form, but if you want to replace the title and registration and get new ones that will have the new address on them, you must do it in person.

Notifying your insurance provider

Your insurance company must also be informed of the address changes. That way you won't have any problems with the communication regarding payments or renewals.
