    Question about Florida

    I don't understand why Florida does not honor non-resident permits from non-residents of issuing states. While at the same time they issue Florida permits to non-residents.

    If you're asking for the literal reasoning, the best I can give you is because they don't want to...if you're asking for practical purposes, however, Florida will recognize your resident Missouri permit, so why worry about your non-res from another state?

    I would add that it may be a money issue. If you offer a nonresident permit, you will want people to buy it. Not recognizing other non-resident permits is a good way to get some people (snow birds) to buy your permit.
