Noblesville, IN asked in Traffic Tickets and Gov & Administrative Law for Indiana

Q: I have a few questions about what is legal and what is not in Indiana pertaining to driving with an Arizona license

I just “moved” to Indiana from Arizona to be with my grandparents. I am living with my grandparents but going to college nearby. To drive in Indiana do i need to have an Indiana license? I know you have 60 days to renew your license when you move to another state but what is the LEGAL definition of moving? If i get pulled over on my way to school with my Arizona drivers license will i get a ticket? Thanks so much for your help!

A: The requirement is based on where your domiciled, not moved. If you are merely going to college in IN but still a resident in AZ and pay AZ income tax then your AZ license is sufficient. However, if you no longer have ties to AZ and would be required to file taxes in IN then you must change your license within the required time frame.
