Indiana Drivers License Change of Address Requirements

Have you recently moved to Indiana or changed residences in Indiana? You should notify the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) within 60 days of a change of address. We've collected information to help save you time when changing the address on your drivers license. Select from the options below to get started. 

1: Get Started with Online Application Services

Online application assistance can simplify the process for many BMV related services for a fee, including: renewing your license, applying for a license, registering a vehicle, replacing your license, changing your address and more. In addition to the free forms and general instructions available from the BMV offices or websites, you will receive value added products such as a comprehensive Easy Guide™ containing information relevant to your service needs. Where possible, we will prepare your BMV forms and/or provide links to BMV online services. You will also receive 30 days of both emergency Roadside Assistance and the Repair Assist consultation service from Road America. In addition, you will be able to take advantage of a free membership to DMV Advisors, a state-specific help desk prepared to answer any driver-related questions or concerns you may have. Other benefits include an ongoing monthly newsletter and a quarterly magazine covering important updates that affect drivers, important safety tips, trends, legislative updates and ways to save money on vehicle-related services.

2: By mail, if eligible (see instructions below)

Some drivers prefer to handle the renewal process by mail, rather than taking advantage of assistance services, visiting the BMV in person, or via available online services. Service by mail is available with limitations. Read below for additional details or visit your local BMV.

3: Via a local BMV office

If you prefer to access BMV services in person or your specific needs require an in-person visit, most, if not all, driver license services can be handled at a physical BMV office location. Varying BMV offices sometimes supply different types of services so you will need to check before your visit to make sure the BMV closest to you provides the service you require. In addition, you can call to see if your local BMV allows you to make a personal appointment. Read more below to see if an in-person visit is either preferred or required.


Writing the BMV

You have the option of writing to the BMV to notify them of your change in address. Send your letter to:

BMV Driver Services

100 North Senate Ave. N405

Indianapolis, IN 46204

Be sure that you include the following:

  • Your full name as it appears on your license
  • Your previous address
  • Your new address
  • Driver license number
  • Social Security number
  • Proof of your new address such as a cable bill, electric bill, or employment pay stub
