Q) How do I change my DMV mailing address online? I have moved recently. I have tried three times to change to the new mailing address. When I get to the end, the message is that the document cannot be sent to the new mailing! What do I do?
A) The process to change your DMV mailing address may vary depending on which state you are in, but in general, you can follow these steps:
- Visit the DMV website for your state. You can find this information through a search engine by searching for “DMV [your state name].”
- Look for a “Change of Address” or “Update Personal Information” section on the website.
- Follow the instructions to submit your request for a change of address online. This may include providing your driver’s license number, name, and current address information.
- Verify the information you have submitted. Ensure that all the information you entered is correct, and that the new mailing address is correct.
If you have already tried to change your address online and received a message that the document cannot be sent to the new mailing address, it is possible that there is an issue with the DMV’s system, or that the new address you provided is not valid. In this case, you may need to contact your local DMV office for assistance. You may also want to consider visiting a local DMV office in person to change your address, as they may be able to help you resolve the issue more quickly.
NOTE: The specific information required to change your DMV mailing address may vary depending on your state, but generally, you will need to provide the following information:
- Your full name
- Your driver’s license or state ID number
- Your current mailing address
- Your new mailing address
- Your signature
In some states, you may also be required to provide additional information such as current utility bills, your date of birth, Social Security number, or phone number. It is best to check the specific requirements for your state on the DMV website or by contacting your local DMV office for more information.
It’s important to note that changing your DMV mailing address does not automatically update your address on your driver’s license or state ID card. If you have recently moved, you may need to request a new license or ID card with your new address.
