In addition to all the various other things you have to do when moving, updating your address with the Bureau of Motor Vehicle's is important to make sure documents like your license and registration show the updated information. The Indiana BMV requires that you update your address information within 30 days.
The BMV of the state of Indiana maintains two records for residents' address information; a mailing and legal address. Your legal address is what must be printed on necessary documents like your driver's license or ID card while a mailing address can be provided to the BMV as an alternate place to send notices and other correspondences. You can only change your legal address by visiting a license branch near you. Your mailing address can be changed at any BMV branch or online through mybmv.com. You are required to have an account and enter your user name and password. If you do not have an account, you must create one before being able to use the online option for your mailing address change.
