How to Change the Address on Your Connecticut Car Registration

Performing a DMV change of address in Connecticut is one of the first steps you must take after you move. If you fail to update your address, you may miss your yearly registration renewal notices and other important mail from the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). By law, you must change car registration address information within 48 hours of changing your address or moving into a new home.

When you update the information on your vehicle registration credentials, the DMV will automatically correct the address on your license as well. Therefore, you can easily update the address on your driver and vehicle registration records at the same time.

What must I do before I change my car registration address in Connecticut?

Before completing a DMV change of address form to update the information on your records, you must first notify the United States Postal Service (USPS) of your new address.

To do so, you may submit your request online or in person at a local post office facility. If you perform a change of address online, however, you must pay a small application fee.
