How To Change Registration Address Of A Vehicle?

The registration documents that you get when you buy a vehicle carry very important information as you would probably know. Not only does the registration officially prove your ownership of the vehicle, but it also acts as an address proof. Do you know that you need to have your current address on your registration documents, as and when you change your location of residence; particularly when you change states?

Vehicle registration documents need to be updated with the latest permanent address if you happen to move somewhere else. If this isn't done, it will be difficult to sell your vehicle with the registration documents showing your old address. However, the procedure to change the address is rather simple.
