Melle12 Posted May 27, 2018 Report Share Posted May 27, 2018 Hi all, We will starting full-timing this September and are deep in the planning (over-thinking in my case) phase. We are going to travel for a bit before landing in FL for about a week to get our licenses, register our vehicles, and register to vote. We are planning to use the Escapee Sumter address and mailing service, but I have a couple of questions still: 1. Do we have to got to Sumter County to get our licenses and/or register our vehicles or can we go to any DMV location outside the county? We had planned to stay elsewhere for our trip, and if possible, do all of this in the Pensacola area. 2. I see on the FL DMV site that once a FL resident, you have 30 days to get a license/register vehicles/etc, but I also see that most full-timers recommend establishing your Escapee mail service more than a month out to get the addresses updated for proof when we show up to get license/register vehicles/etc- Is it safe to say we can have a Sumter FL Escapee address for over 30 days without being FL counting it as the official start of our FL residency? Thanks in advance for any experience and expertise, M Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
