Massachusetts Drivers License Change of Address Requirements

Have you recently moved to a new residence in Massachusetts? The state Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) requires you to process an address change on your Massachusetts drivers license as soon as possible. Fortunately, all you need to do for a Massachusetts drivers license change of address is to notify your local RMV. Select from the options below to get started.

1: Get Started with Online Application Assistance

2: By mail

Some drivers prefer to handle the renewal process by mail, rather than taking advantage of assistance services, visiting the RMV in person, or via available online services. Service by mail is available with limitations. Read below for additional details or visit your local RMV.

3: Via a RMV office

If your specific needs require an in-person visit, most, if not all, driver license services can be handled at your local RMV office. Varying RMV offices sometimes supply different types of services so you will need to check before your visit to make sure the RMV closest to you provides the service you require. In addition, you can call to see if your RMV allows you to make a personal appointment.
