Does anyone know the correct procedure for military personnel to keep their VA resident CHP while stationed outside of VA? For example:
1. I am a VA resident (Home of Record). I will retain my VA legal residency throughout my military career. Consequently, I am entitled to the privileges of state residency (e.g. in-state hunting/fishing license, CHP, VA taxes etc.).
2. My recently updated CHP has my current address on it. Said address will no longer be accurate as of my transfer this summer.
3. So, when I make the move out of state, how do I deal with my Virginia CHP? Do I just keep it as is, or do I try to somehow get it updated? Since my physical address is in another state, but my legal residency is VA, what goes on the permit, and who would reissue it to me?
Anyway, I'd appreciate some insight. This last occurred when I was stationed in AL, and I just kept my CHP with the old address on it. However, it occurred to me that might not have been the best idea. I would like to avoid being potentially arrested in the event a LEO sees that my drivers license (which, by the way, the VA DMV will issue with an out of state address) and CHP do not match.
What a hassle -- moving around SUCKS !!!
