Can I have a DC Licence and have my car registered in MD?

Right now I have a valid MD Licence and registration but my MD licence is going to be suspended for a few months. So before that happenes I was wonderring if I could switch my licence to DC and leave my car registered in MD?

You think you can scam the system by getting a DC license, then turn if your MD one when they suspend it? Good luck with that. They will catch up with you.

But to answer your question, no.

It depends on the rules of Md and Dc, you need to know if they coincide, some states it will piggy back and they will block you privileges fro state to state but if there are no piggy back laws then you are safe..it is not too many states that piggy back but if you get it done before suspension they will let you have it but if it's already suspended more than likely they will not issue you a new license until the other issue is resolved..

NO. The days are OVER.

I am pretty sure you could wind up in further legal trouble if you tried to do that. If you are serious about an answer you might contact an attorney.

Your insurance may be voided. You're telling them you live in one state but have a license from another. If you have a wreck (at which time you'll be producing your license) the insurance company will void the claims you make.
