    SUMMARY: How to Change Your Address in Nevada

    You can change your name on your driver’s license/ID card and vehicle registration certificate online, by mail, by fax, or in person. You will need to pay fees for replacement documents.

    This page will help you change your address on your Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) documents.

    Driver’s License/ID Address Changes

    If you’ve moved to a new address—whether within Nevada or to another state— you’ll need to notify the DMV within 30 days of the move.

    You can make this change either:

    • Online.
    • By mail.
    • By fax.
      OR
    • In person.

    NOTE: If you have a commercial driver’s license (CDL), you must change your address in person.

    Online

    You can change your address online using the MyDMV website. If you don’t already have an account, you’ll need to set one up.

    Once you’ve changed your address online and paid the $3.25 fee, the NV DMV will mail you a corrected driver’s license or ID card showing your new address.

    By Mail or Fax

    To change your address either by mail or fax, you’ll need:

    • A completed Change of Address Notification by Mail (Form DMV22).
    • Payment for the $3.25 fee.
    • A copy of your most recent Leave and Earnings Statement, if you are a military member stationed out of state.
      • This also applies to your spouse and/or dependents who are out of state with you.

    You will receive your updated Nevada driver’s license or ID card in the mail within 10 business days.
