Minnesota Drivers License Change of Address 

Have you recently moved to Minnesota, or have you changed residences within the state? The Driver and Vehicle Services (DVS) recommends that you update this information as soon as possible. We've collected information to help save you time when changing the address on your drivers license in Minnesota. Select from the options below to get started. 

1: Get Started with Online Application Assistance

Application assistance services can simplify the process for many DVS related services for a fee, including: renewing your license, applying for a license, registering a vehicle, replacing your license, changing your address and more. 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

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

3: Via a DVS office

If your specific needs require an in-person visit, most, if not all, driver license services can be handled at your local DVS office. Varying DVS offices sometimes supply different types of services so you will need to check before your visit to make sure the DVS closest to you provides the service you require. In addition, you can call to see if your DVS allows you to make a personal appointment.





Changing Your Address on Your Minnesota Drivers License

Whenever you move in Minnesota you’ll need to change your address. Changing your address on your drivers license is also very important and it’s something you should do shortly after the move. Read more below about the process.

In Person

To change your address on your license, you must visit a DVS location in person. You must apply within 30 days of the move.

DVS officials will use your existing license, ID, or other photograph file to verify your identity. If the DVS doesn’t have a photo on file, or you have changed your name, you will need to provide additional identification. This list highlights documents you may need to prove your identity.

  • The fee for an updated or replacement Minnesota license is $13.50
  • Social Security card
  • Proof of identity
  • Proof of residence
