Change Address on License
If you recently moved within Nevada, you will be required to update your address information with the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles. The state provides two options for address changing on your drivers license: in person or online. Motorists are given a grace period of 30 days to make their official address change with the DMV complete.
How to Change Address on Drivers License in Person
Vehicle drivers who would like to make an official address change at their local NV DMV office must have the proper documentation on hand. The Department of Motor Vehicles requires vehicle drivers to submit these items:
- One proof of identity
- A U.S. birth certificate
- A U.S. passport
- A Certificate of Naturalization
- A Certificate of Citizenship
- Your drivers license
- One proof of Social Security Number
- Two proofs of Nevada residency
Proofs of residency may include a utility bill (electric, water, Internet, cable, etc.), a financial statement from your bank, a medical bill with your new address, a magazine subscription that was recently issued, a mortgage agreement, a lease agreement or any other official piece of mail with your new address listed on it.
Once you have successfully taken the steps to change address, you will be given a Change of Address certificate card to carry alongside your NV driver's license.
Note: If you would like to keep your residential address separate from your mailing address, make sure to notify an authorized DMV agent during your visit.
The NV DMV accepts the following methods of payments:
- Money order (exact amount)
- Electronic checks
- Credit/ debit card
- Pulse Pay
How to Change Address on Drivers License Online
In order to make an address change request online, you will need to visit the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles MyDMV page. Once there, you will be required to create an account with your drivers license number, if you haven't done so already. To create an account, you will need to provide your NV drivers license number, date of birth, Social Security Number and a current email address where you can be reached. Additionally, you need to select a password for protection.
As part of the online transaction, you must be ready to enter the following information:
- Old address
- New address
- Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
- Vehicle registration details
Upon successful completion of your online transaction, bear in mind that it will take the NV DMV a couple of days to process your request. Be sure to print out the confirmation page for your own personal records until your new drivers license arrives in the mail.
