I need to provide proof of address for the DMV, but the process can be difficult because:
I live with someone else; I do not pay rent/utilities; and they will not assist in the process.
The Florida DMV asks that you need two of these for proof of address, which can be tough:
1.Deed, mortgage, monthly mortgage statement, mortgage payment booklet or residential rental/lease agreement
Can't -- don't have any of the above because I'm not paying rent nor am I a homeowner.
Florida Voter Registration Card
Cannot be obtained until after proof of address was obtained initially for the relevant application I'm trying to go for now.
Florida Vehicle Registration or Title
Don't own a car/vehicle.
Florida Boat Registration or Title
Don't own a boat.
Statements (Certification of Address Form) Customers with one proof of residential address may self-certify using the Certification of Address form as the second proof of residential address document
A caveat also states that this must be accompanied by the person you live with's signature and/or their actual presence, which I explained that they refuse to do so.
A utility hook up or work order
Don't pay bills.
Automobile Payment Booklet
Don't own a car.
Selective Service Card
This is only for males.
Medical or health card
I have one, but it doesn't have my address on it so it's not proof, according to the DMV.
Never had one.
Homeowner's insurance policy or bill
Not a homeowner.
Automobile insurance policy or bill
Don't own a car.
Educational institution transcript forms
Have no such things and cannot obtain any since I am not in the public school system as of now.
Professional license issued by a government agency in the U.S.
Caveat -- must be currently valid and up-to-date and it isn't, and this is what I am initially trying to get renewed in the first place.
W-2 form or 1099 form
I am self-employed, so neither of those can work for me.
Form DS2019, Certificate of Eligibility for Exchange Visitor (J-1) status
This is only for Visa/resident/non-citizen card holders.
A letter from a homeless shelter, transitional service provider, or a half-way house verifying that the customer resides at the shelter address
I'm not homeless and none else applies.
Don't pay utilities.
Mail from financial institutions; including checking, savings, credit card statements or investment account statements
I haven't been issued paper mail by a bank since years -- everything digital. I also don't have credit card debt because I've never had a credit card and have no other "investment statements."
Mail from Federal, State, County or City government agencies (including city and county agencies)
If I was getting federal mail I'd be worried -- it's never happened.
Personal mail that does not list the recipient as “occupant”. Example: Magazines, journals, etc.
I throw all that junk out, or hardly get it in the first place.
Transients - Sexual Offender/Predator/Career Offender: �����- FDLE Registration form completed by local sheriff's department
Doesn't apply -- I get plenty of sex without offending anyone.
What can I do? I was thinking of writing a certificate or affidavit stating that I admit under some penalty of perjury that I live in the address -- however, I can almost bet they'll still want the person who pays rent to sign, so I'm out of options.
I suppose I could get a credit card and rack up a bill and get statements, but that would probably take at least a month and I need this certificate very soon.
