What Are the Basics?

When you move, regardless of whether you are moving within the state or interstate, you must notify the Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles to change your address on your driver’s license and vehicle registration.

How Do I Change My Address If I Am Moving Within Delaware?

You can change your address on both your driver’s license and registration by mail or in-person by filling out a Change of Address Form.ou’ll need your driver’s license number and vehicle license plate numbers. There is no fee to change your address. If you choose to mail the form the address is:

Division of Motor VehiclesAttn: Change of Address
PO Box 698
Dover, DE 19903

How Long Do I Have to Complete This?

You must complete the change form within 30 days of your move.

How Do I Change My Address If I Am Moving To Delaware from Another State?

If you are moving to Delaware from another state, you will need to obtain a Delaware driver’s license and register your vehicle in the state. This must be done in person, bringing identification information. You must bring your Social Security card, two documents proving your Delaware residency, and proof of identity and residency. Acceptable documents can be found on this list.

You will take a vision test and then exchange your out-of-state driver’s license for a Delaware one, in most cases. In some cases, DMV may require a road or knowledge test.

You also have to register your car in the state. To do that, you must prove you meet the minimum insurance requirements. You also will have your vehicle inspected in one of the DMV inspection lanes. You apply for a title and pay document fees of 4.25 percent of the value of the vehicle. The document fee can be waived if you can prove you paid sales tax on the vehicle in another state within 90 days of moving to Delaware. Once you pay the fees, you receive a Delaware title and registration card. If a lien is still on the vehicle, the title is sent to the lienholder.

How Long Do I Have to Complete This?

You must complete the change of address within 60 days of your move.

How Do I Change My Address If I Am Moving From Delaware?

Delaware does not require that you notify the state about your driver’s license since Delaware will cancel your license once you obtain one in your new state of residence. However, you are required to return your Delaware license plates when you receive new ones. You return them with a statement that your vehicle is now registered in the new state and name the state. Mail the plates and statement to:

Division of Motor VehiclesAttn: Uninsured Motorist Section
PO Box 698
Dover, DE 19903
