Moving is exciting, a new begining, and very, very draining. Along with all of the other things you will need to do, updating your address with the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration is necessary to be sure documents such as your license and registration reflect the updated information. Each state mandates that you update your address inside a short time period after you move and Maryland residents must do so within 30 days.
Depending on the type of license you have, the state of Maryland provides several options for updating the recorded address on your license, ID, or registration. If you have a non-commercial driver's license, you can request an address change online by visiting the MVA eStore, in person at an MVA office or Kiosk, or by mail using this form and mailing to
