Changing Your Address in New Mexico
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:
- By fax to (505) 827-2783.
- By email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
