You must let the the New York Department of Motor Vehicles know within 10 days if you move.

  • To order a new driver license, learner's permit, or ID card with your new address, check the appropriate box and include a fee of $17.50 for a driver license or learner's permit, $8 for an ID card, or $6.50 for a 10-year ID card. If you don't need new documents, leave this portion blank, and there is no charge.

Mail the form (and the fee, if required) to:
