I'm currently a college student in California, and spend most of the summer with my parents in Georgia, where I vote and pay taxes. I'll be turning 21 this summer. Is Georgia (Dekalb, specifically) likely to issue a GWL under these circumstances, or am I a nonresident?

I could get a Florida permit, but I'm concerned about being considered a resident, and so that permit not being recognized.

Any advice is appreciated.

Putting aside for a moment the unfortunately fact that educational requirements cause you
to visit the mad house that is California....

If you vote in Georgia and pay taxes in Georgia I would guess that your driver's license
has your official Georgia mailing address...

Sounds like a Georgia resident to me...

This makes sense to me.

The place to apply and issuance of the license is the County Probate Court in your county of residence. Documents required are Photo ID and Proof of Residency (a Georgia Drivers License usually covers both requirements). Call your County Probate Court to find out what they will accept.

I missed the line about the driver's license when I first read it. That's good to know. Thanks for the help and the welcome.

whatever your residency is, (and it sounds like Georgia), be truthful and be consistent.
It is a felony offense in Georgia to make false statements to any government agency regarding any matter relevant to your dealing with that agency.
So if (and I say "if") you were to lie to the state about where you reside, you could get charged with a serious crime.
(For what it's worth I think every state ought to allow people to claim multiple states as their residence, for almost all purposes, except voting. For voting, you just have to pick one. If you're not there at the time, vote by absentee ballot).

Thanks. I'm aware, and will take care to be both.

Do you pay non-resident tuition in California?
