Fishing Licenses

Fishing License Proof of Residency

Any one of the following may be used as primary proof of residency:

  • Florida Driver License or ID Card
  • Military orders showing that applicant is stationed in Florida

Alternate proof of residency may be used only if a resident does not have a Florida Driver License or ID Card.
Any one of the following may be used as alternate proof of residency:

  • Florida Voter’s Registration Card
  • Declaration Domicile (obtained from Clerk of Circuit Court)
  • Florida Homestead Exemption
  • Student ID Card from a Florida School (if under 18 years of age)
  • The Oath of Residency signed by the applicant when privileges are issued does not preclude a law enforcement officer from requesting residency credentials be evidenced again. Failure to do so may result in criminal prosecutions.
  • Aliens who have filed domicile with the Clerk of the Circuit Court are not considered a resident. The Department of Legal Affairs no longer allows an alien to establish domicile as acceptable proof of residency. All aliens are considered non-resident.
