Part Time "Resident". Only. The State of Florida Division of Motor Vehicles issues a class e Drivers License because of snowbirds and like in kind.
Section 322.05(1)(B),FS-Surrender of License valid-in-Florida only class E Renewal.
Part Time Resident;
Drivers who hold a class E License and are Part-Time Residents may elect to retain their valid out-of-state license and receive a Florida license which states "Valid in Florida Only" Proof of Part time Residence required. If you are not a Part Time Resident you must surrender the license.
Lizard, I read that after I posted...guess I was living dangerously with both...:$)
A Lot has changed since September 11. Homeland Security has changed and set guidelines for all States and territories regarding drivers licenses. The cowards that flew the planes into the trade center, all had valid State of New Jersey Drivers Licenses.
Lizard, it changed alot of things so I can understand why we aren't allowed. It was a misunderstanding on my part. Florida almost makes it too easy since I don't even have to go to the DMV to get a copy of my license. Since I gave up my apartment when I moved down I used my parent's address and they sent my duplicate license there. I guess it's kind of scary if you think about how easy it is.
What do snow birds who spend part of their time in the VI do? Do they get VI license or keep their stateside?
Tammi...........I split my time between STX and stateside and I keep my stateside license because I do not qualify as a full time VI resident. I'm sure that the VI would ticket me if they checked. I've never been stopped over the years, so I don't know what the outcome might be. Both the VI and home state require that I get a license from them within 90 days. Neither one offers a "Part time resident" deal. I thought about getting both but thought better of it and perhaps a ticket would be better that losing both licenses.
300 to ship a scooter. The driving here isn't as bad as Thailand
