Changing Your Address in Illinois
Compare Insurance Rates in 3 Easy Steps
1. Start Your Quote:
According to the Illinois Vehicle Code, all drivers must promptly inform the Secretary of State's office of any address change. This can be done over the Internet using an online Notice of Address Change form.
Changing your address using this form will not cause your driver's license to be reissued; it simply changes the address on file with the Secretary of State.
If you want your license to be reissued with your new address printed on it, you must visit your local driver services office. There is a $5 fee for issuing a corrected driver license.
Commercial Driver's License
By law, all CDL holders must report address changes to the Secretary of State within 10 days. Due to enhanced security measures applying to commercial drivers, this must be done in person at a local driver services office.
The online Notice of Address Change form form also allows you to update the address on file for the title and registration of any vehicles that you own. You can also indicate a temporary change of address, in which case the title and registration documents will not be updated.
But wait―there's more this form can do. It can be used to request applications for corrected title and registration certificates for any vehicle that you own. Just check the boxes and provide the vehicle information. The applications will be sent to you. It is expected that you will update all the vehicles you own at the same time.
Note: Changing the address in the system is one thing. If you fill out the application form asking for a corrected certificate to be sent to you, there is a fee for each vehicle that you own.
A corrected registration certificate is $3 per vehicle. For a corrected title, the fee per vehicle is much more substantial: $65. You will pay this when you submit the application, not when you submit the online Notice of Address Change form.
If you would instead like to submit your change of address by mail, you can download a printable address change form. Fill this out and send it to:

- Vehicle Services Department
- 501 S. Second St.
- Springfield, IL 62756
