As part time residents, we have always had Florida ID's. My wife has let her's expire and when she went to get another, she was told they no longer issue a Florida ID. You can renew one, but you cannot get a new one. She could have gotten a driver's license, but would have to give up her out of state license. Anyway, what are part time residents doing for local ID's?

When/why does one need a 'Florida ID', if one isn't a legal rez of FL?

Our 'non-FL' IDs work fine, when we are in FL, or in any state...

How do you define "legal resident"?

Whatever state one is a legal rez of...
as in domiciled state, registered to vote in state, DL state, et al.

Never heard of a temp ID, and have never had to have one in any of the 50 states in the US of A...
Passport for leaving/entering the US, but no one in FL has ever flinched at my NC DL.

My question continues: why do you need a 'temp FL id', in lieu of your own state id?
If you are an FL rez, it is even more confusing; if a rez of another state, so what?

I am not talking about a temporary ID. I own property and pay Florida property taxes and I have a Florida resident ID. We live in Florida for part of the year, the amount of time varies each year. I would like a Florida ID for my wife because there are many travel discounts for residents.

My apology, but I am missing the details and your question:
-you are a legal rez, domiciled, in FL?
(Owning a house/condo and paying FL RE taxes does not make someone a legal rez of FL)...
-if you are a legal rez of FL, why doesn't your wife have voter card, DL, et al?
-if she doesn't drive, check out the FL DMV site; they offer non driving photo IDs

He's not a resident of FL. So no soup for him.

So I pay Florida property taxes and live here part of the year, but I am only considered a resident if I vote in Florida? Why?

The US Census, voting, House of Representatives.

So without changing the amount of time I spend in Florida, I can title my car in Florida and get a Florida drivers license. I can then vote in Florida and get a homestead exemption to pay less property tax. But some how that is less of a scam than just getting a Florida ID?

And as far as Disney Florida resident discounts - you can get those without a Florida ID. You just need current bills with your Florida address.
