Change Address on License
If you recently moved to a new residence in the state of Maine, you will need to notify the Bureau of Motor Vehicles of this address changing. Both your mailing address and your residential address must remain accurate and up-to-date.
How to Change Address on Drivers Licenses in Person
One of the easiest ways to update your address in Maine is to visit your regional Bureau of Motor Vehicles office with the proper documentation on hand. You will be required to bring a couple of key documents with you, since the state of Maine now requires proof of residency for those drivers who are in the process of completing an official address change.
Acceptable documentation for proof of residency includes:
- A recent utility bill, such as Internet, cable, water, cell phone, electricity, etc.
- W-2 or paycheck stub
- Vehicle registration in the state of Maine
- Vehicle title in the state of Maine
- Government official document
- Hunting and/or fishing license in the state of Maine
- Mortgage or lease agreement
- Tax return or tax bill
When visiting your local Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicles branch, make sure to have two documents from the aforementioned list.
