Moving Out of State in Massachusetts
Keep Your Massachusetts Driver's License
Unless your new state requires you to hand over your old Massachusetts license once you apply for a new one, you can either hang onto it as a souvenir or destroy it.
However, before you make a decision, check out the Federal Trade Commission's information about identity theft.
Return Your Massachusetts License Plate
When you move to a new state, cancel your Massachusetts registration and either destroy or recycle your license plates. You do not need to return them to the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV).
