Changing Your Address With the DMV
We all experience a whole lot of disorganization that follows a displacement. Your brain is filled with to-do lists and endless boxes and uncomfortable transitions. Luckily, the Department of Motor Vehicles, commonly referred to as the DMV, gives you some transition time to settle in a bit and handle your other big to-do lists that are rattling around in your brain. The amount of time you have to notify your local DMV depends on the state you live in. For example: Virginia and Vermont allow you take thirty days to notify them. While California requires that you notify them within ten days of your move.
It is extremely important to change your address with the DMV so there will be no risk of losing any DMV correspondence including registration renewal notices and the like. For this reason, most states tend to make the process pretty easy. Here are the usual steps you can take and methods you can use which may vary by state:
Get your hands on your state’s change of address form. You can do this by either downloading it and printing it at home, picking it up at your local DMV office, or finding a form you can fill out and submit online.
Fill out the form, whether paper or online, as accurately as possible. Incorrect information can cause a lot of issues further down the road. Once you have filled out the form there are several different ways for you to get that form to your local DMV office.
If your state provides you with the online form, then you can simply submit that online after making sure that all the information is correct. If you have printed out the paper form, then you can either bring it to your local DMV office in person or mail it to them using the address located on the form. If you decide to submit it in person, then you will have the benefit of getting your new registration certificate before leaving the office.
Out of State
If you are moving out of state, it won’t be quite as easy of a process. If you move out of state you will need to apply for a brand new title and completely re-register your vehicle in the new state.
