Proof of Residency for TX Drivers License

Recommended Posts

Question specifically for those who have or are establishing TX domicile through Escapees address in Livingston. How did you work around the Dept. of Public Safety in Livingston asking for a utility bill as proof of residency?

Verizon bill.   Phone is a utility.   

Usually you just need your new registration to show that you have your vehicles registered.   Then go get your Driver's license.   

When we moved to Texas the order was:

Inspection,

Registration,

Drivers License.

Here's the one that is soooooo easy:

- Mail from a federal, state, county or city government agency, or a third-party representing a government agency dated within 90 days of the date of application

So pick some government agency and get them to send you mail.  For example, go to the Texas Consumer Protection Agency and complain.  Complain about anything that bothers you:  Walmart's prices are too low, the fish at your local restaurant is too fresh, whatever.  They will send a letter to the name/address you provide acknowledging receipt of your complaint.  One down!

I'd find about five agencies and get something sent.  That way if one doesn't send mail to you it's not a big deal.

Again, just getting vehicles registered with the new address is all that really needs to be done.  The people in Livingston know how this goes, they have been working with Escapees members for decades.  People are making this much more difficult than it needs to be.

If you deal with the people in Livingston you should be OK. When we got our DL we had to go to some other town as the DL had been flooded. I don't think we brought anything special except our old DL, registration, Escapees Mail Service card and maybe our Passports. Still went smoothly.

sometimes i have thought about buying a acre of land with a "barn" on it.

but would would be up Austin way. can one still get the mail service via escapies?  as said property would just be a parking garage type of place for the seldom needed stop.

I'd think they would be changing  that " non-cellular"  soon as so many people don't even have landlines anymore.  The younger you are, the less likely you are to have ever had a landline.

They really can't - It's too easy to get a Celluar bill in any name or address you like - Just go to the mall and buy one of those phones - they never check ID and you fill out the name and address to send future bills to.
