About Changing Your Address on Your Mississippi Registration
You must perform a DMV change of address in Mississippi whenever your mailing or residential address changes. If you do not change your car registration address after moving from one part of Mississippi to another, you may not receive tag renewal notices or other important updates pertaining to your state-issued license plates.
Before performing an address change on car registration credentials, you must correct the information on your state-issued driver’s license. To make this change, you must submit a request through the Mississippi Department of Public Safety (MDPS) rather than the State DOR.
You cannot update the address on your driver’s license and vehicle records at the same time, as two separate departments oversee licenses and registration. Download our free guide to explore more about updating your address with the MDPS and DOR.
Before Your Address Change on Car Registration in Mississippi
Before performing an address change on registration credentials, you must update your information with the United States Postal Service (USPS) and MDPS. In most cases, you can change your USPS address in person at a post office facility or online for a small fee. However, changing your address with USPS will not automatically update your driver and vehicle registration records.
After changing your address with USPS, you must contact the MDPS to update the information on your Mississippi driver’s license. You may submit your change of address online or by visiting your local MDPS office. If updating the address on your driver’s license in person, you must submit a completed driver’s license application.
