There are a number of important steps that you have to take when changing your address with the DMV. It is important that you have all of the necessary documents before you start changing your address. This will ensure that the whole process runs smoothly.
Changing The Address Online
The easiest option for most people when it comes to changing their address with the DMV is to do this online. You will need to go to the DMV website for your state to do this. Most states will have a MyDMV account page where you can change your address. Before you start the process, you will need to have your ID number and the document number of the most recent driver’s license that you have from the DMV.
When you have this information available, you can log into your DMV account or sign up for one. From there, you will be able to navigate to the address section where you can change the address. It is important to note that you can change the address online if you have a learner permit only as well as a full driver’s license.
Changing The Address By Mail
If you do not want to use the online service or are having issues with the online service, you can request a change of address service via mail. To do this, you will need to complete the MB-232 Change of Address form. This form will need to be sent to the relevant DMV postal address. The postal address that you need to use can be found on the state DMV website.
It is important to note that you can complete the change of address form online and then print it. The payment information when using this method will be found on the form. The payment methods will be limited when compared to the online service and you need to be aware of this.
Changing The Address At The DMV Office
It is not recommended that you change your address by going to the DMV office. The DMV states that you should only go to the office if you need to change your name or photo on your license. However, you will be able to change your address at the DMV office, but it is the longest option.
To do this, you will need to have the form MV-232 Change of Address completed and with you. You will also need to bring cash for the payment of the fees because the DMV office will not always accept other forms of payment. The form will need to be handed to one of the clerks who will then change your address and take payment.
Changing your address with the DMV is something that you have to do when you move. There are 3 methods that you can use, but the recommended one is through the online portal on your state DMV website. You can also do this via mail, but you need to ensure that you are sending the completed form to the correct address.
