Moved out of state

#1

Post by koine2002 » Thu May 31, 2018 1:45 am

Hey fellow LTC holders,

I'm officially a Texan in exile. I just moved to Whidbey Island in Washington State. I took a new pastorate up here. Getting a Concealed carry license here is rather straightforward and not too tedious (shall issue state, no classes, just need to pass background check and be of age) and OC of handguns (but never long guns in a car) is legal with or without a license. Folks in my church all carry. It's a Navy town (everyone in my church is somehow connected to NASWI) and everyone I've met is amenable (even those more on the left) to carrying. The Ace Hardware in town is an FFL.

I've a question, though. What do I do with my Texas license? I'm up for renewal late this year. I know Governor Perry decreed a unilateral recognition of Washington licenses in 2005, but that can change with a single election. Is it possible to renew my LTC as a nonresident license? If not, do I need to send it back or should I just let it expire? I'll probably get a Utah license (once I get my WA license) for carry in other states since Washington doesn't play very nice if I have to start from scratch for a nonresident Texas license.

I believe you are required to notify TX within 30 days of your relocating. TX will send you a nonresident license if you request it and pay the fee. When the license is up for renewal they will send you a letter and you can renew easily online. I don't see any reason to give up your TX license, certainly not before you have UT.

You can renew it online, The Texas LTC is valuable for it's recprocity in more states than any other state. If you move back again you will have to go through the classes, the photo's and fingerprinting all over again.

The easiest thing is to renew early and update your address. You can renew online 180 days before your birthday.

If you’ve moved out of state & gotten a new Washington DL- you must renew or change address by mail. The website is not set up to change your DL# to another state
