1: Get Started with Online Application Assistance

Application assistance services can simplify the process for many DMV 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 DMV in person, or via available online services. Service by mail is available with limitations. Read below for additional details or visit your local DMV.

3: Via a DMV office

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

Once you have moved to New Jersey, you must replace your driver license within 60 days or before your current license expires. New Jersey drivers can change their address on their license either online or in person.  


To change the address on your New Jersey drivers license online, you will need to do the following:

  • Complete the online form provided by the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission.
  • Make sure you have your Social Security Number (SSN) on hand, as you will be required to provide it as a form of identification.
  • After filling out a request for address change online, you will receive a confirmation letter within three weeks along with stickers stating your new address.
  • The stickers will need to be pasted on the back of your current license and vehicle registration. You will not be issued a new driver license.

In Person

In order to change the address on your New Jersey license in person, you must:

  • Visit the nearest New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission office with your current driver license and legitimate documents that will help pass the Six-Point ID and address verification procedure.
  • If you hold a valid, non-provisional driver license issued by any of the 50 states or the District of Columbia, you will not need to take the required knowledge and road tests.
  • However, you will be required to turn in your old license to the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission.

Once you have received your new license, it will be valid for four years.
