Mississippi Car Registration Change of Address

Have you recently moved to a new residence in Mississippi? You will need to change the address on your car registration to keep it current. Select from the options below to get started.

1: Get Started with Online Application Assistance

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

3: Via a DPS office

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




Changing Your Address on Mississippi Registration

To change the address on your vehicle registration, you need to contact the Department of Public Safety. You must present evidence of the address change in order for the information on your vehicle registration to reflect this. Acceptable documents include utility bills, rent or mortgage agreements, tax documents, and earnings statements or pay stubs. You must visit a Department of Public Safety office to have your change of address validated and official. You should receive a corrected version of your vehicle registration within five to 10 business days of submitting your application. The fee for changing your address on your vehicle registration varies county to county so be sure to contact your county office before visiting a local office.
