Transferring Your Driver’s License and Vehicle Registration(s) to Connecticut
Welcome to Connecticut! The process to transfer your driver’s license and vehicles to Connecticut requires certain documents and the payment of fees.
Once you have established residency in Connecticut, you have 30 days to transfer your out-of-state license to Connecticut.
- License transfers can only be completed at DMV Hub Offices in Bridgeport, Danbury, Hamden, Norwalk, Old Saybrook, Waterbury, Wethersfield and Willimantic. You may also transfer vehicles at these offices.
- Be prepared. Find your required documents on the license and ID checklist.
- Vehicles must be brought to an Emissions Test Station (for emissions/VIN check) prior to visiting a DMV office.
