Frequently Asked Questions - BreEZe

How do I change my address of record or email address?

An address or email change can be done online via the BreEZe system. You will need to sign into the system and follow the instructions to submit an address/email change.

You may also change your address/email by printing and completing the Notice of Change of Address/Email form. Please sign the form and fax it to the number on the form.

NOTE: If you are renewing at the same time you want to change an address/email, please be sure to change your address/email before renewing your license. Please complete those steps first in the BreEZe system prior to completing the renewal process online. If you are faxing the form prior to renewal, please write Expedite for Renewal at the top of the form before faxing.
