What happens when I change my car registration address in Oregon?
When you change your car registration address information with the Oregon DMV, you will not receive a replacement registration card or driver’s license that displays your new address.
However, the DMV will send you an address sticker to attach to your current Oregon driver’s license.
To update your registration card, you may write your new address directly onto the face of your current credential.
If you wish to obtain a new driver’s license or registration card that displays your new address, you may purchase a replacement registration card in person at a local DMV office.
