    Sick, I feel for you...I really do. I'm no lawyer, but by paying, I think any legal remedy was forfeited. Now as to the insurance, have you explained that the suspension of license was due to a nonmoving violation? Is the state requiring you carry SR22? Also, is the suspension judgement satisfied? If so, can they require you to carry SR22 on your wife's car?

    Also don't know how legit these are but hope it helps

    Keep the NC plates, I've known people that have gone to school for 4 years and never got a FL plate. You're a needle in a haystack in Orlando. Only question is how do you renew them?

    I would gladly keep the NC plates and licenses, but there are 2 walls in the way, different than if it was a normal out of stater moving to Florida.

    It isnt the issue of having NC plates and licenses in Florida, it is having those AND having current points, (A lot of points) on a Florida license......so my wife would be infact fraudulantly using out of state plates to cover up a cop seeing her Florida issue, so if that were to be found out in a normal traffic stop, my wife gets a fender bender etc.....than the consequences could be severe.

    also, like Byroan pointed out....the state of North Carolina has you inspect your car annually. I know, it may not be a ton of money, but to drive every year 600+ miles (one way) to get a car inspected is a lot to do. Not impossible, but annoying. Also, I would have to have a NC address no? I am sure I got some buddies I could "use" their address, but how concrete is that?

    My wife and I came to a pretty good middle ground last night. We are writing letters to the state, to the judges, to the county clerks, to everyone. We will pay any fines we have, and we will wait this out. I am 24, she is 28. We are young, and Florida will always be there. We have a rare opportunity to be in a situation financially (due to a accident settlement) to pay off bills, get our credit in order, and really set ourselves up for the future, instead of using every penny to move.

    We are both at ease with the decision. We have a 1400 sq ft town home here for 750 a month with water included around "A" schools. Can't find that in most metropolitan cities in Florida. My wife has an incredible job at one of the best plastic surgery offices in Nort Carolina (Piedmont plastic surgery and dematology), and they are looking to promote her to the histology lab with a real good raise. I know everyone and anyone within SunTrust here in the Charlotte area.....the opportunity for growth is enormous with some hard work.

    My son has been at the same daycar since he was 9 months old (he turns 4 in a couple of weeks) so he has friends and is very comfortable with the teachers.

    I am agnostic, I don't know about religions and things like that.....but with the situation we've gone through the past few months, it feels like "something" was telling us to stay. For whatever reason. We are going to positivley look at this, work hard, better ourselves, and when the time is right, we will be back in Florida. Could be next month (if a judge has mercy) or in a couple of years....but whenever it is, I'll buy a few of you guys some beers! Cause I have been posting here since 2007 (and prior on finheaven) and I really appreciate the words of encouragement, the love and the friendships from here. It's mushy, but it's true.

    Anyone ever around Charlotte hit me up!!!

    I think you could be found of insurance fraud if you live in FL and use someone else's address is NC for "appearance" purposes too. Plus, it might even be worse than a single case of insurance fraud alone since you would be committing crimes across state lines (by that I mean you would be committing fraud in both states at a minimum).


    And I'll be around Charlotte next week, only a short hop to LeLand, NC.

    Exactly I think it's the best bet to stay put until its wrapped up. We should get a beer.

    be careful having her drive in florida with NC plates on. While in NC if she was ever run by an officer the DMV return would have just been for NC, and nobody would see the points out of florida unless they specifically searched for it.
    Back in FL, if they run her even with a NC driver's license and NC tags, they will still almost certainly check for florida driving history as well automatically. I'm assuming with 15 points on a license it is currently suspended by the state yes? Driving on a suspended license can get her a hefty fine and a car impound, so just be careful if you go that route.

    i agree with the others though. talk to a traffic attorney and see if you can get a judge to remove most of those points. Like you said, there are people who have DUI'd and killed people and are still driving. there's no reason your wifey shouldn't be able to drive because of a misunderstanding.

    You never know though. There are cases with drivers who just have dumb luck and get pulled over multiple times. Heck, I've seen the same person get pulled over twice in the same night in the same city, for something as minor as they didn't realize their brake light was out.

    Ya but the risk is higher in the most popular tourist city in the world. Dumb tourist drivers, rubber necking looking at attractions, not knowing where they are going, tapping breaks etc....fender benders have GOT to be some of the highest % in Orlando.

    I've kept my Florida license in numerous states (mainly b/c I have an affinity toward it and really hate going to the DMV for a new one) while using insurance from a completely different state b/c the rates were lower.

    My current car I bought in Texas, drove it back to Florida, and moved to NC..... 6 months have passed and the tags are still from TX, my license is from FL, and my insurance is from NC. There was a problem getting the title from the previous owner's bank, so I still don't have the proper title and registration, and my insurance address doesn't match my license address as I previously alluded.


    I've been pulled over by NCHP 3 times for speeding during this time; each time I couldn't produce title or registration; tag was from TX and still in previous owner's name; license was from Florida (which was lost so I had to relay my license # off the top of my head); insurance was from NC (was the only thing I actually did have in the car to provide him).

    Of the 3 times, I was issued a warning for speeding once...... and told to slow down and have a nice day the other 2.
