What does one need to transfer an out of state drivers license to NH?
I understand I need my current out of state drivers license, and a second proof of ID (Passport, Birth Certificate, Socialist Slave Card, whatever) and a "Proof of Residency".
However, I've heard too many conflicting reports to what types of "proof of residency" satisfy the bureaucrats. There are even conflicting answers on the DMV's own website. I've been told, I only need a notarized letter from the person to whom I pay rent (In my case, my roommate whom holds the lease). I've heard that's not enough, and that I need a notarized letter from the actual landlord whom owns the property. Then I've heard that's not enough, and I need to go to city hall with the landlord to get a "Town/City Clerk Approval of Residency Letter".
I am confused, how much "proof of residency" do I need for the DMV bureaucrats?
To make everything more complicated, I have no written "lease agreement", I just pay my rent and equal split of utilities on time. All utilities are in my roommates name.
Also, I heard I must surrender my current out of state drivers license, and I would have to wait a couple weeks to get my new one. What if I need a photo ID within that time? Does the piece of paper they print on a laser printer work for most purposes? (This makes MA look like a model of efficiency, you would get your new drivers license in a week)
Also, regarding vehicle registration, the DMV's site says Massachusetts does not recognize temporary plates. But I've seen people driving around with temporary plates for several weeks because the DMV is so slow with getting plates, If I register my automobile in NH, what am I supposed to do if I have to drive to Massachusetts? is there a way to get plates in NH faster?
