How to Change Your Address on Your Florida Registration

Performing a DMV change of address in Florida is a mandatory process to complete if you own a registered motor vehicle and move from one part of the state to another. Under state law, you must change car registration address information, correct the address on your certificate of title and update your Florida driver’s license or identification card within 30 days of moving into a new residence.

To update the information on your Florida driver and vehicle records, you can typically complete the process in person or online, depending on your preferred method.

Where can I change my car registration address in Florida?

To perform an address change on car registration and driver’s license credentials, you must visit a local office of the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) to complete the process in person. You may also submit your request online if you prefer.

However, keep in mind that you should first change your address with the United States Postal Service (USPS). Typically, you can change your address with the USPS either in person at a local post office or online.

Once you change your address with the USPS, you must follow the process to update your address on your FLHSMV driver and vehicle records. To learn more about changing your car registration address after you move into a new home, review the information below.

How to Update Online

To submit a change of address online under the FLHSMV’s website, you must have internet access and be able to provide your Social Security Number (SSN), date of birth, license plate number and driver’s license number.

Additionally, you must be able to pay any applicable fees with an accepted credit card, such as a Visa or MasterCard. After correcting the address on your registration card, you must apply for a duplicate credential that displays this new information.
