    Going from non-res to resident in FL?

    I will be moving back to Florida sometime near the end of this year. Was thinking of getting my non-res permit and once I establish residence, go ahead and get it switched to a resident permit.

    I have searched and not been able to find much info on the matter, including FL's website. Just wondering if it would be less trouble to just wait and get the resident permit after living there a while.

    I would just call up a Sheriff's Office and ask. I live in FL right now but its only temporary - my permit is non-resident. They have specific laws about if you move though...check the laws I'm sure you'll find it.

    Go ahead and get a Florida Permit.

    When you move in-state you just change your address and it's done.

    TerryD,

    Here is the link to Florida's website. Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. It is under liscencing (sp). Would talk the folks directly there at DOA for your particular situation. Good luck.

    Yup , As someone has already mentioned , Fl does not has non-resident and resident permits . A simple name change is all you would need to do after becoming a resident . It cost $15.00 to do and takes about a week and a half .
    Anyone make a IWB holster for my AR ??

    The $15 fee is only if you want a new card mailed to you.

    You can submit your change of address online: Division of Licensing - Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    I had no idea it would be that easy, and only $15. Guess i'll get all my stuff together and get my non-res for now.

    Thanks everyone!

    I would suggest that you confirm that simply changing your address changes you to a Resident permit.

    Florida only issues one type of permit. There are no "Resident" and "Non-Resident" Florida CWFLs.

    Ok. I have a question. If florida only issues one type of permit, what about states like OK that do not recognize non-res CHLs. Would getting a FL count as a resident? LOL

    No. All Florida permits look exactly the same. There is no difference. The Florida permit also has your residential address listed. This address is the only sign that you are not a resident of Florida.

    This is great to know. We're thinking about moving back this year as well and I wasn't looking forward to waiting 90 days w/o carrying to "qualify" as a resident.
