If you change the mailing address for your vehicle, driver’s license and identification card, it is very important to notify the Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) of this change. The California DMV requires that you notify them within ten days of making the change.

DMV Change of Address: Los Angeles
The state of California requires vehicle owners to fill out and submit a form to notify them of a change of address. This form is available on the state government’s website and needs to be filled separately for each driver or vehicle owner. It is very important that the names on this form match the names already available with DMV.

This form should then be mailed to the DMV office in Los Angeles. You may also drop it off with them in person. Some people also choose to file for an online address change but many find this to be more inconvenient than otherwise.
After your address is changed in the DMV records, you are issued an Address Change Certificate that you are required to carry with you. A change of address with DMV does not change the address on your driver’s license. If you want to change your address there, you will have to apply for a duplicate driver’s license with the new address. Standard fees will apply.

If you are in New York and have recently changed your address, you need to notify the DMV immediately. This process is free of cost.

Many drivers may continue using their old license and either write down their new address on its back or carry a DMV issued Address Change Certificate with it. You do not need to notify the DMV of a temporary address change, like if you are going to school.

If you, however, want to obtain a new license with your changed address on it, you will have to pay for it. A regular license will cost you $17.50 and this can be paid by check, money order or credit card depending on how you are applying for it – through mail or phone.
