Just Moved?

Find all the information you need to finish your moving requirements with the DMV.

When you move to a new state, there are many things you'll need to take care of with the DMV, such as:

  • Transferring your out-of-state driver's license.
  • Registering your car in your new state.
  • Registering to vote.

Our "New to State" guides will help you make this transition quickly and easily. In addition to outlining all the documents you'll need to bring to the DMV, you will find information about:

  • Required vehicle inspections.
  • How long you can drive with an out-of-state registration and/or driver's license.
  • Organ donation and how you can help.
  • Fees you'll need to pay.
  • Voter registration.

While some transactions must be completed in person at your local DMV office, other transactions—such as registering to vote or signing up as an organ donor—may be completed online or even by mail. In most cases, there is a deadline for having these tasks completed, so pay special attention to any DMV timelines to avoid penalties.

Requirements for new residents vary from state to state, but we have all the information you need right here. Simply choose your new state and we'll help you get on your way!
