    SUMMARY: How to Change Your Address in Maine

    An address change on your driver’s license or ID card requires a visit to your local BMV office in person. To change your address on your vehicle registration, you can submit your request either by mail or in person. In both cases, you will need to provide proof of your new address.

    This page will help you change your address with the Maine Secretary of State's Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) and obtain updated documents.

    ME Driver’s License/ID Card Address Change

    Once you’ve moved to a new home in Maine, you’ll need to notify the Secretary of State of your new address within 30 days.

    You must visit your local Maine BMV office in person and present proof of your new address. This can include your:

    • Utility bill.
    • Paycheck stub.
    • Rental/mortgage contract.

    For a complete list of accepted documents proving your Maine residential address, visit the BMV website.

    If you’d like a replacement Maine driver’s license or identification card that has your new address, you will need to apply for a duplicate. Instructions can be found on our following pages:

    Car Registration & Title Address Change

    • Your out-of-state driver’s license.
