Moving Out of State in Massachusetts
Keep Your Massachusetts Driver's License
Unless your new state requires you to hand over your old Massachusetts license once you apply for a new one, you can either hang onto it as a souvenir or destroy it.
However, before you make a decision, check out the Federal Trade Commission's information about identity theft.
Find all the information you need to finish your moving requirements with the DMV.
Return Your Massachusetts License Plate
When you move to a new state, cancel your Massachusetts registration and either destroy or recycle your license plates. You do not need to return them to the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV).
