If you are planning to move, whether across town or permanently out of state, Nevada requires motorists to file an address change within 30 days. This is particularly important if you have any traffic tickets or court appearances pending as there is a risk that there will be a warrant issued for your arrest if you do not do so and subsequently fail to appear. There are three ways to accomplish a Las Vegas change of address:
In Person – You will require form #DMV-002 (License or ID Card Application). Fill this out and bring it with your payment of $3 for a license/ID card and/or $5 for each Registration Certificate to any Department of Motor Vehicles field office. Your new license or ID card will be mailed to your new address and new Registration Certificates will be issued at the DMV office.
By Fax – You will need both form DMV-022, Change of Address Notification by Mail, and form VP-205, Payment Authorization to initiate a Las Vegas change of address. Fill these out and fax them to (775) 684-4992. After your fee of $3 for a license or ID card and/or $5 for a Registration Certificate or license plate decal is processed, the new license/ID card will be mailed to your new address within 10 business days. Updated Registration Certificates/plate decals will be mailed under separate cover.
By Mail – Essentially the same procedure as for submitting via fax. Fill out forms DMV-022 and VP-205 and mail them to the address listed on the application.
Currently, proof of address documentation (utility bill, etc.) is not required for a Las Vegas change of address. Active-duty military and their spouses and dependants residing in the state of Nevada but stationed out of state need to provide a copy of the most recent Leave and Earnings statement.
Whatever the method used to report your Las Vegas change of address, it is very important that you do file the proper forms and fees with the DMV. Otherwise, you may not receive important communications from them such as renewal notices, and may even have a warrant issued against you if you have an outstanding ticket. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
