Address Change

Updating Your Address?

The BMV maintains two addresses for each customer record: a residential address and a mailing address. Your credential has your residential address printed on the front of the card. Your residential address is also printed on your vehicle registration(s), which you renew each year.

If you have moved recently and you hold an Indiana credential and/or vehicle registration, you need to visit a BMV license branch to amend your residential address as soon as possible.

You may also choose to amend your address on your title or registration during your visit. Amending your credential’s residential address, which includes the street, city, county or township does not affect the expiration date of your credential or vehicle registration(s). However, if you choose to only update your address on your title or registration, you will not be able to renew your credential with the BMV’s online services, and you will have to return to the BMV license branch to amend your credential before you can renew it. Once you have updated your residential address on your credential, you will then be eligible to renew your credential with the BMV’s online services during your next credential renewal.

What do I need to update my residence address?

To amend your residential address, you must visit a BMV license branch with two documents proving Indiana residency. Proof of Indiana residency can include documents such as a lease; monthly banking, credit card, or mortgage statements; utility bills; or similar documentation that is generated on digitally printed organizational letterhead. This documentation must be dated within 60 days of your visit to the BMV. For a complete list of acceptable documents, please visit this page.

What do I need to update my mailing address?

The BMV also maintains a mailing address for you. Your mailing address is used for sending renewal reminders, license plates and other correspondence. This can be changed by logging into your myBMV.com account and updating your mailing address. However, changing this address will have no effect on your credential, and you will not be able to renew your credential using the BMV’s online services.
