You notify the Sheriff in the county that issued you license - Lake County. They may take the change of address over the phone, or through other means. Check their website, then call them. Or, just send a certified letter, return receipt requested and be done with it.

Edit: If it has been more than 45 days since the move, I would not mention the date of my move in the letter...

Nice sample letter, MWSY.

Oh, and yes, I know that a certified letter isn't proof of *what* you sent in the envelope. However, as it will be sent from your new address, I think it could easily serve as sufficient proof of notification of the change of address in the unlikely event that becomes necessary.
