    NM Changing Your Address

    Whether you are packing up for a move into your dream house or are just switching apartments, you will be faced with some important paperwork. Besides all the essential (and stressful) signing-on-the-dotted-line documents, it is also imperative to let people know about the big move.

    Most places that you do business with will need to be informed of the situation. A number of these businesses, like the post office, even provide forms to expedite the process.

    The New Mexico Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) requires that you inform them of a change of address within 10 days.

    To change your address on NM MVD records, as well as your vehicle registration and driver's license/ID card, you will need:

    • A completed Change of Address Request (Form MVD-10284).
    • Payment, if you would like a replacement driver's license:
      • Valid for 4 years: $18.
      • Valid for 8 years: $34.

    Submit the above to the New Mexico MVD:

    • In person.
    • By mail to:
      • MVD Data Entry Unit
        P.O. Box 630
        Santa Fe, New Mexico 87504
    • By fax to (505) 827-2783.
    • By email to jonathan.roybal@state.nm.us.

    Name Change

    The last thing the majority of people off gallivanting on a blissful honeymoon are thinking about is the MVD's name change policy. But if your name changes because of marriage, the MVD needs to know.
