How to Change the Address on Your Delaware Registration
You must perform a DMV change of address in Delaware within one month of moving, relocating or changing your address.
If you do not change your car registration address information in a timely manner, you may not receive future renewal notices from the Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and other important correspondence from the Department.
To update your address with the Delaware DMV, you can typically submit your request online, in person or by mail. Online requests are typically the quickest and most convenient, but you are free to choose whichever method suits you best.

How can I change my car registration address in Delaware?
By law, you must perform an address change on car registration credentials within 30 days, or you could begin to incur penalty fees.
As such, it is important to notify the division as soon as you move into a new home, relocate to a different part of the state or change your address for any other reason.
Fortunately, the Delaware DMV provides you with three simple submission methods for updating the address on your vehicle registration records.
Note: When changing your address, you have the option of requesting a duplicate car registration card that displays your new address.
How to Apply Online
You may submit your Delaware change of address online if you hold a state-issued driver’s license or identification card.
You must also be able to login to the DMV’s online portal. If you do not currently have an account, you must create one by providing your date of birth, the last four digits of your Social Security Number (SSN) and a driver’s license or identification card number.
If you cannot provide this information, you must change your vehicle registration address by mail or in person at a local DMV office.
