I live and work in CA for a firm that requires that I have a CA driver's license, registration, and insurance.

I travel to NV quite often to visit family (about twice a month, sometimes more); and spend up to several weeks in NV at a time. I use my family's home address as my primary mailing address since I have to change addresses in CA for work often (my work assigns me to different cities in CA often). So the CA DMV had me put my NV mailing address on my CA driver's license.

A short while back I got pulled over in NV & was cited for expired tags (took care of that same day, an oversight).

They ALSO cited me for (1) 'operating a vehicle in NV w/o a NV DL' and also for (2) being a 'resident w/o a NV DL'.

I'm not sure how to resolve this issue...since it appears I'm going to be fined by NV as if I were residing full time there.

Does anyone know the 'ins & outs' of this issue?

Thanks.

Well that is kind of odd having a Ca DL with a Nevada address, not sure what you can do short of trying to explain it to the judge. I travel and "live" for up to 6 months all over the US, I just keep a DL in the home state, with an address in that state.

I'm an independent contractor courier in CA, and they put me up in hotels in different cities for various lengths of time. So, I don't have a stable address here in CA. Therefore, the DMV suggested that I used my family's address in NV as a mailing address. So I did. When I'm taking a break from driving, I head to NV to stay with the family & get my mail.

The only problem is now that NV is trying to slam me with fines for not having a NV DL & registration. I would just do what NV suggests....except that my clients in CA require a CA DL, registration, and also CA plates. It's also required by law in CA to maintain all three of these in CA in good status (DL, reg., plates).

Go to court and explain that DMV told you to use the NV address as a mailing address and that you don't live there, if they want to push it, ask the officer to prove you were a Nevada resident. It's odd that DMV would let you put an out of state address on your CDL even if it was a mailing address. Have you thought about getting a P.O. Box in California? You can use it as a physical address if you format it correctly, i.e. If you P.O. Address is Box 600 Carmichael CA, 95608 you would format it as 6929 Fair Oaks Blvd #600, Carmichael CA 95608
