Of course they have access. Otherwise if your license was suspended or revoked you could just go to another state and get a license.

My seester was secretary at a Florida insurance agency years back. At that time, she said Florida didn't swap information with Indiana and Arizona, the two states that I had drivers licences from at the time. Of course, things may have changed since then.

One of the best things I did when we bought a house in FL was ditch my MA license ang get one from Florida. It's a CDL Class A license and good for 8 years, plus we could homestead the FL house saving tax money.

If that is a capital gain from a previous homestead sale, that would apply in any state, welcome and turn off your blinkers and stay to right except to pass. biggrin

Pretty sure FL gives you a discount on yearly Property Taxes after 5yrs of residency.
(Not sure if it's for everyone, or old timers discount)
License being a good step 1... biggrin

You are getting into a grey area regarding tax purposes and legal residency, I'll stay out of this.

All that means is you haven't gotten in an accident, or gotten a ticket in Florida yet, or at least it hasn't shown up at the DMV yet. Give them time, all your stuff will catch up with you.

My mother just turned 82 and IL gave her a license for another 2 years, that scares me more then a little, but the thought of her getting one for another 8 years would scare me a lot more!
I guess that is just one more reason I don't want to go to Florida any more. Gene

Nope. You have to be a permanent resident and it has to be your primary home. Which means you have to live here for at least 6 months and a day.

Many years back but the MADD crowd got that fixed years ago so now I believe most if not all of the states share now. Computers and the internet made it easy

Well "Residency" does assume you are saying you live there enough to meet requirements. biggrin

Keep the house in the north for the summer months... when it's hot as balls in FL
