    Hey all-

    I'm a senior here at Emory and have a question about obtaining a GWL. My parents split their time between PA and FL, so I have both a PA Driver's License and a Florida ID Card.

    I am looking to get a GWL, but from everything I read, it seems only a GA DL will fly.

    I have my name on a lease and utility bills for a house here in Dekalb, where I've been living for a while...does anyone know if that will do or is the GA DL my only bet?

    I will eventually switch my license over to GA, but until I graduate I can't (b/c of my car insurance). Anyone have any insight on this?

    Thanks!

    Get your Florida License.

    However, if you are not a minor, you may be a Georgia resident, notwithstanding your insurance garage location.

    Well, if he's a minor then a GWL or a FL CCW isn't gonna happen period. Maybe he's a Doogie Howser genius and is actually a minor? :shattered:

    I think you can get a non-resident PA license, too.

    What about a Georgia i.d. card, rather than a driver's license?

    I tried that but they said I'd have to forfeit my DL.

    If you have your DL in PA, get a PA permit, it will be honored here in GA, and in FL too if you are a PA resident. Or, if you can, get a FL permit, it has the most honored reciprocity.

    hope that helps
