Changing Your Address in Nevada
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.
A new driver's license or ID card will cost you $3.25 and you will receive your new card in the mail within 10 business days. If you would like a new registration certificate or decal, it will cost you $5 per vehicle.
You can change your address either online, by mail, by fax, or in person.
To change your address online, visit the Nevada MyDMV website. You will need to sign up for an account if you don't already have one.
