Relocating to a new home can be thrilling but still very taxing on your time and patience. Aside from all the other things you must do, up-dating your address with the Minnesota Driver and Vehicle Services, a division of the Department of Public Safety, is important to make sure documents like your license and registration reflect the updated information. All states require that you update your address inside a short time period after you move and Minnesota residents are required to do so within 30 days.
Unlike many other states who offer online or mail submissions for address changes, the state of Minnesota requires that it be done in person at a Driver's License office. This is necessary because a duplicate must be obtained and your identity is verified during your visit. Luckily, the fee to obtain a duplicate with updated address information is only $13.50. Once this is completed, any important correspondence regarding your motor vehicle related privileges can be sent to the proper address.
