How to change your address on your driver's license in Massachusetts

You will have 30 days to let the Massachusetts driver license division know about your change of residence, and to obtain a replacement driver license.

It's a pretty simple process to let the registry of motor vehicles know. You can choose to make the change in person, via mail, telephone, or online.

  • By phone: If you have a new digital photo license, you can phone in your change at (617) 351-4500. You can either attach a change of address label to your license for no fee or pay $20 to have an amended license sent to you.

    Make sure to include your name, date of birth, license number, any plates registered in your name, and your old and new addresses.

    If you are requesting a new license to be sent to you please enclose a $20 check payable to the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles.
