Change of Address in Montana
Continue reading this page to learn how to change your address with the Montana Motor Vehicle Division (MVD).
MT Driver's License/ID Card Address Change
When you change your address in Montana, you must notify the MVD within 10 days or risk losing your driver's license.
To change your address on your MT MVD records, mail a completed Change of Driver License Address (Electronic Record) (Form 34-0300) to the address on the form.
If you'd like an updated Montana driver's license or ID card showing your new address, you'll need to apply for a replacement by visiting your local MT MVD office and paying the $10 fee.
Car Registration & Title Address Change
If you've moved to another county in Montana, you can wait until your registration is due for renewal to inform your new country treasurer's office of your new address.
Visit our Registration Renewal page for more information.
NOTE: If you have a permanently registered vehicle, you do not need to change your address on your registration.
If you'd like replacement vehicle documents that show your new address, you can order duplicate copies. Visit our following pages for more information:
