What do you typically have to do to get a new drivers license in a new state that you just moved to? I'm guessing that it varies a little by state but i've heard you basically take the state's written test, give them your license from your old state, and show a piece of mail from your new address like a bill or something. Is that pretty much the jist of it or is there more to it than that? Thanks for all input.

I have never had to take a written test when I changed a drivers license from one state to another. Depending on how the State you are moving to is handling the whole ID thing you may need an official Birth Certificate. Not a copy of your birth record like most hospitals give out that has your little footy prints on it, but the actual, from the courthouse birth certificate. If you don't have one now, get one. It generally makes life easier and saves a trip if that is what they ask for.
