How to Change Your Address on Your Rhode Island Registration

You must perform a Rhode Island DMV change of address whenever you move from one part of the state to another, as failure to do so may result in the loss of mail. 

If you do not change car registration address information after you move into a new home, you may not receive license plate renewal notices from the state Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Additionally, you may not receive important notifications pertaining to your Rhode Island vehicle and driver’s license. 

Once your address changes, you can easily notify the Rhode Island DMV by submitting your request online, in person or by mail.

How can I change my car registration address in Rhode Island?

When you perform an address change on car registration credentials, the DMV will simultaneously update your driver records as well. As such, you only need to submit one DMV change of address form after you move from one part of the state to another. 

When you update your address online, by mail or in person, you will update your driver and vehicle registration records at the same time. Learn more about these application methods in the sections below.
