It’s important to keep your residential and mailing address updated with the DMV whenever it changes.
Doing so will ensure you receive any important documents the DMV sends you such as renewal notices, replacements, and updated driver’s licenses, vehicle registration cards, or license plate stickers.
In some cases, you may even face fines and penalties for failing to update your address with the DMV quickly enough.
Luckily, updating your DMV address for your license and registration is an easy process. In many states you can complete the task online.
You’ll typically need to have the following information ready:
- Your old and new address.
- Your driver’s license number, date of birth, and Social Security Number.
- Your vehicle registration number, license plate number, and VIN number.
- Documents that you can use to provide proof of your new address, if necessary.
