Can I renew a year early?
#1
So I am curious can I renew my LTCF a full year early? My current one some of the stuff has rubbed off and hard to read. and I would like my updated address on it. Plus my picture sucks. Will they let me renew a year early?

I renewed 2 months early. The only thing is, you'll still only get a 5years license. You will loose that year..

That's fine. I just think if it's rubbed too much and you can't read some of the info people may hassle you.

If your county still issues the outdated paper version you might want to consider taking your new one, whenever you get it, to Staples and spend about $3 - $4 to have it copied, reduced and laminated. They're very familiar with LTCF, and know just what size to make it, it only takes a few minutes.
That prevents wrinkles, smudges and fading on the one you carry while preserving the original.
I haven't heard of anyone copying the plastic LTCF cards yet but it is an option. I'd do that in a heartbeat too. Then you can put your original in a safe place. If your wallet is ever lost or stolen you still have the original to have another duplicate made from.
I just called Staples and was told that they do indeed offer the same service for the plastic LTCF and it's the same price as the paper ones.
There are three types of people in the world:
Those who make things happen,
Those who watch things happen,
And those who wonder what happened.

And there "shouldn't" have every been any county charging more that $25 ($20 now) either. That doesn't mean it hasn't happened or won't happen somewhere.

I'm moving soon and my LTCF is still from this year. What should I do about moving to a new address? Should I inform them or pay and get it updated or just let it alone. I'm also moving to a different county.

The new license is a small laminated card, but it is still just laminated and is, as far as I am aware, paper underneath the laminate. It's just smaller. At least that's my understanding, I may have to check that (I have the older and larger paper version that I laminated myself, it's falling apart already).

I responded to this in the other thread. If you want an update there's nothing wrong with doing so, at least not under the law as I understand it (not a lawyer here). However, if you renew in your new county before your old license expires your old license may get marked in the system as 'revoked' with possible implications for applications to other state's non-resident licenses resulting from that. Currently Sheriffs and the PSP are marking licenses as 'revoked' without a care for those implications, and without telling people about it, and they are currently doing that for lost/stolen/early-updated licenses as far as I am aware.

Yeah my LTCF is new as from May of this year. So you think I'm better off not messing with anything until my 5 years is up? I just don't want any problems with my ID being my New address and my LTCF being my old address I'm moving from York county to Dauphin county PA.
