    Driver's License

    Advertisements



    Hey guys I wanted to know from students in clinical rotations about whether they changed their license and/or car registration when they began out of state rotations in Illinois or Texas? Any information would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    I don't recommend it. It's too much of a hassle to change everything over then potentially have to change it again for residency.

    Oh alright thanks for the reply man. I was just a little concerned because some of the state dmvs had rules pertaining to if you had been living in a certain state for over 60 days or 90 days then you are considered a resident and would need to get a new license and registration. I haven't seen any student do that when I was doing preclinicals though. I know that if you are attending an american university then you can just tell the traffic officer that you go to school there temporarily. I hope that if by chance they pull you over that you can tell them you are a windsor student doing rotations and they will understand.

    i think you should be fine. obviously stay out of trouble but the rule you are talking exists in all states, just for a different period of time. some say two year some say two months. i believe it's more for people that would benefit from state residency, like to receive aid or to qualify for in state tuition for a school in that state. so it's more of a minimum for those people than it is a threshold before someone has to convert their state residency.

    it might be an issue if your plates expire and you need that sticker, but if you have family in your original state, they can always mail you those stickers and you can stick them on. for your license, obviously, you go in person, so you'd have to go home and to the DMV and get it done there. but nothing that would require you to change your state of residency, license, etc.
