How to Handle a Change of Address in Maryland

If you are a Maryland resident and have changed addresses or plan to do so in the near future, you must have the address information updated on your license, vehicle registration and title certificate. You are also required to notify your insurance provider of your new address.

  5. The process normally takes about two weeks.

ADDRESS CHANGE ON YOUR VEHICLE TITLE AND REGISTRATION

  1. You can either report the change of address in person at a local full-service MVA office in person or Corrections unit by mail or tag and title service agents in person.

NOTIFYING YOUR INSURANCE SERVICE PROVIDER OF AN ADDRESS CHANGE

  1. You must also notify your insurance provider of your change of address, so that you receive timely information regarding due dates for payments, renewals, and other communication.
  2. To save time and money, some Maryland drivers who change addresses choose to obtain a free quote for new auto insurance instead of changing the address with their current insurance provider. Not only does this save the hassle of contacting and notifying the current insurance company, but it could potentially save hundreds of dollars by identifying companies that offer lower rates and/or better coverage.
