How to Change Address With Connecticut DMV

One Methods:Fill Out the Change of Address Form

The State of Connecticut requires 48 hours notification when you have changed your address. The process to change your address with the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles (CT DMV) is simple and there are several alternatives. You can change the address at the Connecticut DMV website, go directly to a CT DMV office or go to select AAA offices. Each option requires filling out the CT DMV Change of Address form.

    Indicate the options you need to change by checking the appropriate box or boxes--driver's license, registration for your motor vehicle, and/or registration for your boat.
  2. 2
    Select whether or not you would like to be listed in the Organ Donor Registry.
  3. 3
    Check whether you need to change your address to update your voter registration location.
  4. 4
    List your name under Applicant 1--surname, first name, and your middle initial. If your spouse, domestic partner, or other person is changing his address, list his name under Applicant 2.
  5. 5
    Write in your new mailing address. Include house or apartment number, street, city or town, state and zip code.
  6. 6
    Include your new residential address if it is different than your new mailing address.
  7. 7
    Determine the Connecticut town or city where your car will primarily reside, leave from and return. Fill it out to the right of the line that says "Tax Town."
  8. 8
    Ensure that all applicants sign their signatures and date the form in the Signature section.
  9. 9
    Fill in your Connecticut Operator's License Number in the spaces provided. If there is another applicant, fill in his Operator's License Number in the section next to yours.

    Indicate your vehicle's state, registration number, and expiration date if necessary.

    List all motor vehicles that require a change of address. For each vehicle:
    • Write down the type of plate (passenger, camper, combination, etc.)
    • Write down the number of each license plate
    • Include each license plate's expiration date
  12. 12
    Fill in your prior residence.
  13. 13
    Mail the completed form to the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles. Refer to their website for the mailing address.


  • This one form will allow you and a co-registrant to make changes to your operator's license, your motor vehicle registration--license plates on up to 4 vehicles, boat registration, and a photo ID card for someone that does not drive.
  • Change your address with the post office so you will receive all necessary correspondence from the CT DMV.
  • Retain your prior driver's license(s) and vehicle registration(s). On the registration(s), strike out your prior residence and fill in your new address. Obtain the required label from any DMV Office or Police Department. Adhere the filled out label to the back of your license. Fill out your new address information.
  • If there are co-applicants, both may use the form provided they both list their operator license numbers.
  • The form will be considered invalid unless it has been signed and dated by all applicants.


  • Don't forget to pay your property tax bill. Even if you have not received the bill in the mail at your new address, you are still responsible for payment. Go to the tax assessor's office in your prior town or city and reconcile any accounts. If you do not pay your property tax bill on time, you run the risk of having your registration suspended.
