Last year we were told by the DMV that Florida will no longer take a mailing address for driver’s licenses and that they now require a physical address. We use St. Brendans Isle for our mail service and we don’t have a physical address since our boat is our home and we try to stay out of marinas. Luckily we were in Key West renewing our registration and driver license information when we were informed of this bit of Floridian insanity, because in Key West there was a woman who knew of a little secret way around it. Our boat is documented and registered with Florida so our documentation number is our registration number. She informed us that since our boat is documented and registered in Florida, then it could be used as our physical address. So now on our driver’s license, our address shows as our D number and that’s it. In the system, the non-printable part of the address shows “In Boot Key harbor”, our location.

For everything else, we use our St. Brendans Isle address.
