What is New York DMV Change of Address Form?

The New York state law requires you to notify the New York Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) within 10 days of any permanent address change — do not report a temporary address change. Whether you moved within New York or from another state, you will need to apply for a change of address on your driver’s license, vehicle registration, and title certificate. It is your obligation to keep your records updated, as failing to do so may lead to penalties.

The DMV is a state-level government office responsible for all vehicle-related services, including issuing of licenses, registering vehicles, and, maintaining a database that contains the driver information of its residents..

While you have the option to get new documents when you change your address, you are not obligated to apply for a new license, permit, non-driver identification card, or registration document. Nevertheless, you may request for new ones that reflect your new address at an additional cost. When you change your address, you can write the new one on the back of your driver’s license or identification card and your vehicle registration document, crossing off your old address. Do not write on your title certificate. Instead, if you wish to obtain an updated document, you should apply for a replacement.

If you want to change your mailing address, you must report to the U.S. Postal Services (USPS) directly, as updating your DMV records does not update your records with the USPS.

To change your address on your vehicle and driver records, you must use the MV-232 New York Change of Address form. The form is available on the New York DMV official website. Also, there are websites where you can fill out and download the form for convenience.
