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.

Thanks for the link, Dutch. That was very helpful. Like the dummy-proof check list. smile.gif

But I didn't find an answer as to whether one is able to use a Florida mail service/PO box for the address on a FL license. Any ideas on that?

Florida does require a street address on driver's licenses, even if your mail is received at a PO box. As most of the commercial mail forwarders typically used by RV'ers do supply you with a street address that includes a number that can be listed as a "suite" instead of a "box" number, I suspect that's not an issue. The best answer though, might be to give one of the mail forwarders a call about meeting driver's license address requirements, such as the popular St Brendan's Isle at 800-544-2132.

When we started fulltiming I tried to use our Mailboxes Etc. street address as our residence address on our drivers license. Even back then, the DMV computer recognized that address as a Private Mail Box (PMB) street address and would not allow it. They do, of course, allow it as our mailing address, which is the only one that appears on the license itself.
