What Are the Basics?
When you move, it’s your responsibility to let the Wisconsin DMV know that you are changing your address. You can do this online, by mail, through email, or by phone, making it easy to get the new address corrected.
In Wisconsin, to change your address, you just need to change your address with the postal service. If you need updated documents, then you need to pay for those.
How Do I Change My Address If I’m Moving Within Wisconsin?
If you are moving to Wisconsin, you need to notify the Wisconsin DMV within 10 days of moving to the state. You can do this by:
Mailing an Address Change Notice (Form MV3058) to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation at:
Madison, WI 53707
Calling (608) 264-7447
- Going online to the Wisconsin DMV website
- Emailing the DMV with your request
You will need to include your Wisconsin driver’s license or ID card number when you change your address.
How Do I Change My Address If I’m Moving Into Wisconsin?
Follow the same steps as above, but remember that you need to transfer your out-of-state license within 60 days. You will also have to update your vehicle’s registration with the state.
You still have the option of changing your address by email, in person, by calling, or by going online. Using email is not recommended, but it is allowed within Wisconsin. Email is less secure than other methods of communication, so the DMV recommends coming in person, using the USPS or going online. If you wish, you can email the Bureau of Driver Services, though, to have it handle your address change request.
How Much Does It Cost to Change Your Address?
To change your address, you will need to pay different fees depending on the documents that you need to update. The following is the current fee structure:
- CDL: $14
- Vehicle registration: $2
- Certificate of title: $20
- ID card: $16
- Driver’s license: $14
The Wisconsin DMV will accept payments in the form of:
- Debit card
- American Express
- A check made out to the “Registration Fee Trust”
Online, you can pay with:
- Automated Clearing House
- Credit card
If you use a debit or credit card, then you may have to pay a convenience fee on top of the charges above.
Who Can I Call With Questions?
If you have questions, the Wisconsin DMV would like to help. You can contact the Wisconsin DMV at any time by emailing its email service. You can also call (608) 266-2353 when you change your address and ask any questions you have about the process. If you would like to find more information online, it is available at Wisconsindot.gov.
