Re: Live aboard legal address

"Florida won't issue a driver's license without a POSTAL address in Florida"

Not so. I was told that if I did NOT have a PO box , then the address on my license would be "in care of general delivery", and still listed as homeless.

You all need to understand, I WANT this designation - am getting further and further off the grid. But, I have to say, I was VERY surprised that they allowed me to get a DL without a physical address. Oh, they did try..."is it a houseboat?; is there one marina you stay at more than others?" etc. And they concluded that I was homeless per Fl's definition.
