Address Changes

Moving Photo

We do not accept any address change by email.

Address changes on Commercial Driver Licenses must be completed in person. See DMV offices.

Nevada law requires motorists to notify DMV of a change of address within 30 days of the move, including residents who are leaving the state permanently.

Keeping your address current with us is important as we mail your renewal notices.  We also use the mail to notify residents of license suspensions, vehicle insurance validation problems and other potentially serious issues. You may list separate mailing and residence addresses. The DMV can also update the address on your voter registration when you change your address with us if you move within the same county.

Please review the Real ID Act information below before choosing which option to use.

Real ID or Standard License - The Choice is Yours  New!

Nevada is now issuing licenses that comply with the federal Real ID Act of 2005.

If you currently have a standard license and you complete your address change online or by mail/fax, your new license or ID will be marked "NOT FOR OFFICIAL FEDERAL USE." See The Real ID Act in Nevada for more information.

If you wish to obtain a Real ID license or ID card, you must visit a DMV office and submit proof of identity and address.

Real ID License

Real ID Driver License

A Real ID compliant license is marked with gold circle containing a star. A Real ID will be required for those who wish to use a driver's license or state ID to board aircraft (beginning no sooner than 2016). See Real ID Enforcement in Brief for details and other instances where a Real ID is required.

To obtain a Real ID license or ID card, you must show proof of identity and residential address one time at the DMV. Most license holders submitted proof of identity in the past. You must show the documents again to obtain a Real ID.

Standard License

Standard Nevada License

A standard Nevada license or ID card is marked "NOT FOR OFFICIAL FEDERAL USE" and will not be valid for boarding aircraft or other uses outlined in Real ID Enforcement in Brief.

You do not have to present any documentation other than your existing license for renewal. You may use the Internet, kiosk or mail options below if you are eligible to do so.

Registration Renewal

Use MyDMV if your vehicle registration is due and you must change your address. Create a MyDMV account, change your address and renew online in just a few simple steps.

Vehicle registration renewals completed through the Internet or an emissions inspection station are sent to the address on record for the vehicle. The U.S. Postal Service will not forward the Registration Certificate and decal. A forwarding order with the Postal Service does not change your address with the DMV.

If we do not have your correct address, please renew by mail and include a Change of Address Notification (DMV 22). If your registration is due or expired, you may renew at a DMV kiosk and complete the address change afterward. You do not need a renewal notice to obtain an emissions inspection or renew.

If you have already completed the renewal, you will have to apply for a substitute decal. You may use an Application for Duplicate Registration Certificate (VP 013) and a Payment Authorization (VP 205).

Include a cover letter with your daytime telephone number. Fax these to (775) 684-4797 or mail them to the address on the application. If you are mailing your application, you may pay by check or money order.

The substitute decal and Certificate of Registration will be mailed within 7 - 10 business days. You may also renew or obtain a substitute decal in person at any DMV office. See Renewal Options.
