    Permanent Moves

    If you're moving out of Arizona permanently, you just need to send a copy of your new state's vehicle registration to the Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) to let them know your vehicle is now registered in another state. Mail the information to:

    • Arizona Department of Transportation
    • Motor Vehicle Division
    • P.O. Box 2100
    • Phoenix AZ 85001

    Or, you can wait until the MVD sends you a notice once your registration has expired, and then send a copy of your new registration.

    Temporary Moves

    If you're leaving the state on a temporary basis, let the MVD know online or by completing a change of address card at a MVD office or third-party location. You may also notify the MVD in writing by sending a letter to:

    • Arizona Department of Transportation
    • Motor Vehicle Division
    • P.O. Box 2100
    • Phoenix AZ 85001

    Be sure to include your full name, driver license number, current address, new address, and date of birth.

    Or, you can call the MVD at:

    Phoenix: (602) 255-0072
    Tucson: (520) 629-9808
    Other areas of the state: (800) 251-5866
    Phoenix (TDD only): (602) 712-3222
    Other areas of the state (TDD only): (800) 324-5425
    No matter the method, be sure to notify the MVD within 10 days of the move.

    Prepare for the Move

    Ease your transition into your new state by visiting our "New to Your State" section, which provides an overview on driving-related tasks that should be taken care of shortly after you move to your new home.

    Military Information
