Address Change

Customers are encouraged to use the online address change system.

Change of address labels are no longer mailed to customers, since the equipment and materials needed to do so are no longer available. We regret the inconvenience; however, the online address change system will provide an immediate confirmation of the address change in printable form.

Use of the online system requires an email address to which the MVC will send an electronic letter confirming the change at the end of the transaction. Confirmations may be sent to your local printer at the end of the transaction. The MVC encourages you to retain the confirmation letter as proof of compliance with N.J.S.A 39:3-36, which requires all drivers to report address changes to the MVC within one week of the change. 

For those customers who do not have a New Jersey driver’s license or non-driver identification card and only have a vehicle registration document, you may also process your address change online.  To do so, log in to the web application using the number labeled “DL” located in the lower right side of your registration card.  The DL number printed on your registration card will need to be entered into the log in screen where the system asks for a “driver’s license number.”

Customers who wish to have updated official MVC credentials instead of a confirmation letter that reflects an address change may do so by ordering a duplicate online. (Updated licenses are $11.00 and updated registration documents are $5.00. Four year registration documents are $11.00.)

Customers who respond to official MVC renewal notices for either driver licenses, non-driver identification cards, or registrations will receive through the mail an updated credential reflecting any recently reported address change. Please allow approximately 2 weeks for delivery.

Customers also have the option to mail in address change requests.  Requests can be mailed to:

Database Corrections Unit
PO Box 141
Trenton, NJ 08666

Mailed requests must include the following information:

  • A signed letter indicating their request;
  • The letter must include the customer’s last address of record;
  • A copy of the customer’s driver’s license or non-driver identification card; and
  • Proof of new address in the form of a recent mailing, such as a utility bill.  (This proof must be in the name of the person requesting the change)

Note: Email addresses will not be used or shared for solicitations.
