    I have homes in two states. Each state requires me to have a state drivers license but each state refuses to allow me to keep the one I have from the other state.

    Anyone know how to get around this?

    I did a search and found this interesting article.

    Leave it to government to make a law abiding citizen a criminal.

    How does DMV know about you in one of the states. The reason I asked is I also have homes in two states. Calif & Oregon. The Oregon home is considered part time so I don't believe I will be required to have license. However I will be registering a car there in the near future. ????

    Most states make you get a state drivers license within 10-days of moving into the state. In order to get a state license you have to give them your current out-of-state license. Then you don't have the other one. Then as soon as you return to the other state you have to do it all over again to be legal in that state.

    In addition, you have the problem with the insurance company for your cars as well as the license plates. I am going back and forth all the time. Several times a year.

    What do you tell the police officer if you get stopped? Have not had that problem yet. Thankfully.

    They can't force you to drive
    Just get a state ID card in the state you will spend the least amount of time in.

    This is a perfect example to having a National Drivers license. (And not for un-documented people).


    Yuma,
    What is snow? Is it that white stuff in a freezer?

    Did you vote for Kerry in Ohio, too?

    Norm,

    The key word is PRIMARY residence. I've had the same problem. Where you pay state tax is the best way. But there are lots of ways of showing primary residence.

    How can you ask Norm such a question? He only voted Kerry in Oklahoma, not Ohio.
