Changing Address On Car Registration In Texas

How to change the address on car registration in Texas


Registration is a process of making oneself responsible for his/her property legally. Being registered means adding necessary information in the registration and issuing of plates. However, if the vehicle is not registered correctly, or unregistered, a fine would be charged. Car registration should be the first task to be done when moving from one place to another. Though there are many reasons to register, essentially car registration makes your vehicle and self protected. Moving within Texas, the law requires getting the vehicle registered or updating the address and other documents, within 10 days after getting settled in your new home, or as soon as you send a child to any Texas school. It is one of the few mandatory tasks one needs to perform when moving to a new place.

The registration process in Texas can be done by following methods:

  • Mail
  • Phone
  • Internet
  • In person

You must first locate the nearby driver's license office to update their records. Change of address requires providing legal proof of residence by visiting the local Department of Motor Vehicles in Texas. Change in residential address can also be done by downloading a ?change of address form' and submitting it through mail. This change does not involve any payment and can be done via mail, phone or in person. However, if the change of residential address is done through internet, payment will need to be done with a credit card. Notifying about the change of address enables you to receive car registration renewal notice and other correspondence on time.
