Changing Your Address in Nevada
Compare Insurance Rates in 3 Easy Steps
1. Start Your Quote:
Nevada law requires that you notify the Department of Motor Vehicles of any address change within 30 days of moving. This applies even if you're leaving the state to live somewhere else.
Keeping records updated helps the DMV contact you about issues that could be serious, including license suspensions, insurance verification, and driver's license or registration renewal notices. You're entitled to give a mailing address that isn't your physical residence (such as a P.O. box), if you so choose.
You have several options on how to notify the DMV about your change of address. In all cases, you'll need to fill out a Change of Address Notification form:
- Fax the form to (775) 684-4992.
- Mail the form to 555 Wright Way, Carson, NV 89711.
- Submit the form in person at your local DMV office.
If you faxed or mailed your notification to the DMV, you'll receive a sticker to place on the back of your existing driver's license, free of charge. Residents who submit their notification in person at the DMV will receive a new license displaying the new address for a fee of $3.
NOTE: Nevada has instituted a Central Issuance policy for driver licenses. While the Central Issuance policy is currently only effective in Carson City and Reno areas, the policy will take effect in all remaining Nevada DMV offices in the coming weeks.
Fees in this article reflect the new Central Issuance fees. If you live in an area where Central Issuance is not yet in effect, subtract 75 cents from any listed fees.
If you also need an updated certificate of registration with your new address on it, you'll need to include the Application for Duplicate Registration Certificate.
Forms that are faxed in should be accompanied by a Credit Card Authorization form for the required $5 charge. Forms that are mailed to the address above can include the credit card authorization, check, or money order. A new certificate will be mailed out in seven to 10 days.
Military and Commercial Drivers
If you're in the military and stationed outside of Nevada, simply fax or mail in the notification forms as described above. In addition, however, you'll need to include a copy of your most recent Leave and Earnings Statement.
If you have a commercial driver's license, you must submit your address change notification in person at your local DMV office. No forms will be accepted by fax or mail from CDL holders.
