    New Connecticut Residents

    If you’ve moved to Connecticut from another state, you’ll need to inform the CT DMV of your address by applying for your driver’s license and registering your car.

    Transfer Your Out-of-State Driver’s License

    Once you’ve moved to Connecticut, remember to transfer your out-of-state driver’s license within 30 days of becoming a resident. You will need to visit your local CT DMV office in person and:

    • Present the required documents.
    • Provide your out-of-state driver’s license.
    • Pass a vision exam.
    • Pay the driver’s license fee.

    For more information, visit our Applying for a New License (Drivers 18+) or Applying for a New License (Teen Drivers) page.

    Register Your Out-of-State Car

    The Connecticut DMV gives you 60 days to register your out-of-state vehicle in the state. You will need to have your vehicle pass an emissions test and have the vehicle identification number (VIN) verified first.

    Once you’ve completed these two tasks, you’ll need to visit your local Connecticut DMV office in person with various documents and payment for the registration fee.
