How do I renew my US drivers license overseas?

Postby Winston » Thu Mar 04, 2010 4:43 am

From my dad:

Dear Win,

Our tenant mailed us some mails from US. There are 2 mails need your attention right away.

1). Your driver license will be expired on 3/10/2010. You can renew it through internet www.dot.wa.gov. You will need your license #, your SSN and credit card to renew it. The renewal fee is $25.

2). A letter from Citi credit card that they will charge an annual fee of $60 effective April 1st. Do you really need your Citi card and paying $60 for it? You can call 1-866-915-9425 to close your card. I highly recommend you do that.

Please remember to move around. Do not sit down especially right after meal.

Love,
Dad


So I can renew my drivers license online? If so, how do I get it? Will they send it to me overseas? Anyone do this before?

Winston, when I was in Peru, New York State (where I lived before) would not allow me to renew my drivers license being that I was living overseas and I was no longer a resident of the state (because I was out of NY for more than 6 months). I am sure most states are like that.

Well I already renewed it online and they already sent it to me.

How do you tell the US government that you live overseas though or set your status as an Expatriate?

I mean, what if you get a jury duty notice or fail to pay for Obama's new healthcare plan? How do you exempt yourself from those things?

You write a letter to the judge who is in charge of the court which summoned you and explain to him or her that you are living overseas now. There is something that says you can get out of jury duty if you can prove that it creates "undo hardship" for you. Living half-way around the world or being busy with university classes are good excuses.

Eh, I don't follow US news. What are you talking about? Isn't this just part of the taxes Americans have to pay (if they have to pay them)?

Obama's healthcare

Postby milltime15 » Thu Aug 15, 2013 12:53 am

Hey Winston, I wouldn't worry about paying taxes on any healthcare plan...I am sure which ever country you are living in now has been providing your healthcare for free.
