    Permanent Moves

    Address Change

    If you're leaving Oregon permanently, notify the Driver and Motor Vehicles (DMV) of your change of address within 30 days of the move.

    Change your address for free online, or by sending a completed change of address form to:

    • DMV Headquarters
    • 1905 Lana Ave N.E.
    • Salem, OR 97314

    When you receive a driver's license from your new state, your old license will be sent back to the Oregon DMV.

    Disability Placards/Permits

    A disabled placard or permits must be returned to a DMV office, or send it to:

    • DMV Headquarters
    • 1905 Lana Ave N.E.
    • Salem, OR 97314

    License Plates

    Though Oregon law does not require you to surrender your license plates, it's still a good idea to protect your identity. The state can also recycle the plates.

    Surrender your Oregon license plates once you've obtained plates from your new state. Mail the plates to:

    • DMV Headquarters
    • 1905 Lana Ave N.E.
    • Salem, OR 97314

    Insurance

    Don't forget to alert your vehicle insurance company about your move.

    Temporary Moves

    If you're moving outside the state temporarily, alert the DMV of the move if it means a change of residence.

    Do this for free online or by sending a completed change of address form to:

    • DMV Headquarters
    • 1905 Lana Ave N.E.
    • Salem, OR 97314

    This will change the address on your license and registration records. The DMV will send you a sticker with your new address to place over the address section of your license. Registration cards with your new address are issued only by request.

    Preparing for the Move

    Make matters easier by visiting our "New to Your State" section, which gives an overview of driving-related tasks that should be tackled immediately after you settle into your new home.

    Military Information

    Military members who will be temporarily living outside of Oregon should check out our Drivers in the Military section for important registration and license information regarding their special situation.
