Re: U.S. Drivers license

Hello everyone and wow, I had no idea that there would be so many responses. Thanks for the input.

I look forward to learning more about sailing.

Honestly if I ever move back to the states the "Live Aboard" life is the route I would seriously consider.

I am also looking at sailing options here, but don't have a lot of time to pursue now.

Thanks again,

Seb

Re: U.S. Drivers license

Why not simply renew the Wyoming license and also establish an account with St. Brendan's Isle in Florida? Have you talked with the people at St. Brendan's? They are very helpful. After renewing your current license you would be left with plenty of time to establish Florida residence.

I have not read any reference you've made to being a cruiser or having a boat. Are you coming to the need as a boater in Europe?

Re: U.S. Drivers license

Hello Hudson,

This thread has opened my eyes to possibilities. I thought that there was no way to do that since I have always walked into the DMV to renew and I don't have and address in WY. But now I may make some phone calls and see if it is possible to renew by mail. It's worth a phone call anyway.

In a preliminary online check it doesn't seem possible as I am not in the military.

"Resident military personnel and their dependents temporarily out of state may obtain an extension on their license, extending it for 4 years from the date of expiration. The fee is $15. Nonresident military personnel may use home state driverís license."

Yes, they are very helpful at St. Brendan's, I have talked to them twice. From the first time to the second time I talked to them something in Florida law had changed and it is a bit more challenging now to accomplish this, and they told me the details, but I don't remember exactly what the change was.

No I am not a cruiser or really even a sailor. I have sailed a bit and enjoy it. Right now I am just in the learning and dreaming stage.

I have always liked the big cats and am spending most of my time in that forum.

Thanks

Seb
