Yes, he had the Ohio title. That car was registered easily and successfully in 4 previous states.
I am indeed going to recommend he contact perhaps the sherifff or HP for the VIN verification, though of course there is always the possibility of encountering the woman’s brother who will attempt to ticket him for not having done this a long time ago.
Last and certainly not least, what kind of agency employee is she that would tell someone to continue driving around on out of state plates in violation of the FL statute?
Exactly!! But, that is what he has run into at every point.
However, a correction. I looked up the rules way back in March when they moved there. There is a short time limit for people who become employed in Florida, but it is more like six months if you do not get a job. I must wonder if this is to reduce clerican load for all the snow birds?
He knows the rules very well. He went in right away to get his d/l updated and they turned him down because his mailing address was a motel. They couldn’t find a place to rent within her income level for over six months. At every point while trying to correctly comply with government requirements on moving into the state a gov’t employee turned them away.
She got a good job in a school and was immediately well loved by the other teachers. Then, the non-teachers in the head office cut back two people. Her principal cried when she told her the news.
They found another place to live until she found a job, and went to forward the mail. A government official said you cannot forward mail again once you have lived in a hotel or motel.
There were other obstacles. I simply can’t remember them all. At every point a gov’t official said, “No!” Even though you must, you cannot.
They finally got a very expensive place to live in the country, $900 a month which is outrageous for their income. But, motels were costing them much much more. No cell phone coverage in the house. I can only talk to him if he walks a quarter mile to the end of the lane. So, then he got his d/l changed. Now, just the plates, which is the point of discussion on this thread.
Do you think your son would be willing to join the discussion? Perhaps we could better help if we were able to ask him some questions about the details.
I am sure not. He has been thoroughly kicked you know where for over 2 years and needs no more. Which is part of the problem. When everything you do gets you a swift kick where it hurts, you at some point find it hard to keep on fighting. That is why I am trying to help him, and I believe the answer has been posted here. Thanks for that.
A lot of young men are going through that right now. The actual unemployment among men is well over 20%. A man can only leave his house so many times to look for work, until he simply can’t do it any more. The time will vary, but I am sure it’s less than six months. Yet, there is always some smart aleck with a job who calls the unemployed, lazy. Including my son’s FIL. A really important man who stocks shelves at Wal-mart.
