When you log on to DMV Online Services by entering your ID number, you will get a complete listing of all vehicles registered to you. On the same page you will find a link to web pages that will guide you through the process of changing your address on-line.
NOTE: If you log on to DMV Express using your vehicle's plate number you will not be offered the option of changing your address.

The process for completing an address change on one of the Vermont DMV kiosks is similar to the process described above for DMV Online Services.

Complete the name/address change form.

For a company: A change of company name (on a registration) will require a change of name certification from the Office of Secretary of State.
