I'm sure this subject has been covered before but since the Dept. of Homeland Security has made so many changes in licensing, I wonder what is the best way to deal with having an address in order to maintain driver licenses and registrations on vehicles when you are full time and no longer own a home. We currently live in Florida and you have to go through hoops to prove who you are and where you live to get a driver's license here. I am guessing that you can't use a P.O. Box on a license any more. Anyone have any ideas? IF I do this I will be traveling and staying in
Florida, Arizona, California, Colorado, Washington State and New Jersey. Most of the time between Arizona and Washington. Any advice from anyone in any state would be appreciated.

The requirements for the Federal "Real ID Act" that Florida participates in for driver's license ID are really not that onerous for most full time RV'ers using Florida, or any other participating state, as their domicile. Any one of five different birth proofs are called for, along with one of five different proofs of SSN. But the most difficult it seems for most that complain about the requirements before looking into them, seems to be the required two proofs of residence address. Taking a look at the twenty two choices though, it seems to me that showing a vehicle title or registration and a vehicle insurance bill or policy ought to be a simple matter for most RV'ers. That's all that's needed.

I don't know how many times I have explained to people that they don't have to worry about obtaining birth certificates as long as they have a passport. A passport is the ultimate proof-of-citizenship document. Even an expired passport can be used to prove citizenship even though it can't be used to cross a border.

The internet and forums such as this often contribute to the problem because so much misinformation is shared. Thank you for providing correct and useful information in your post.
