I just moved back home to New York from California. I renewed my NY state drivers license online and received it in the mail today. However, it expires in 1 year on my birthday. Why does it expire so soon? I don't get it. My family members license don't expire for another 4+ years.

Apparently I was supposed to get Texas plates on my car within 30 days of moving here and get a Texas driver's license within 90 days of moving here. I didn't, and that was 10 months ago. What's going to happen to me? [more inside]

My brother will soon graduate from a US Maritime Academy with a 3rd Mates Unlimited, and a couple years later, have a 2nd Mates Unlimited License (to steer ships). How hard would it be to transfer/use this license in Europe? Specifically, he is interested in working in the North Sea for Norwegian companies because of the better pay, working conditions, time off

I have written software that I would love to make open source. However, I would like to take the back-end, the core of the application, and sell Android and iOS implementations of it while keeping the front-end for PC development open. Is this possible? Practical? Even worth considering? [more inside]

YANML: I'm 25 years and 30 days old. I'm at a bar crawl in Pittsburgh. I just got denied entry to a bar on Carson St because my Ohio license is expired by 30 days.
What is the Pennsylvania law for a bar regarding alcohol service for a 25 year old with an expired ID? I.E. how can I avoid getting blocked for the rest of the evening?
Things to consider: Grace period for expired license, possessing multiple credit cards in my name (to verify identity) and obviously over the age of 21 based on physical appearance.

In New York State, if you are walking down the street on a public sidewalk (not doing anything illegal) and if a police officer asks to see your ID, by law, do you have the right to not show them?

There is a photo I took, which a firm wants to use on the cover of a Holiday card. Quantity would be around 30.000. One time use. They will credit me on the back. I have no idea how much can or should I charge for it. What do you think? Thanks.

I am in California and I am about to buy a car last registered in Michigan. The car is here. In Michigan, the plates follow the owner and therefore the car won't come with any plates.
Once I take it to the DMV and register it, will they give me some kind of window sticker or something so I can drive the car around before my CA plates arrive in the mail?

Scootering back to Aus (Melbourne) from UK and want to transfer my motorcyle license.
I have a UK A1 class motorcycle license (A full A1 licence permits you to ride any motorcycle up to 125cc and a power output of up to 11kW (14.6 bhp) without `L' plates, carry pillion passengers and use motorways.) Can this be transferred to something useful back in Aus (Victoria) so I can ride a Vespa (150cc) with sitting any more tests or having L/P plates??

Last night on the Tonight Show Conan did a bit on his driver's licenses in New York and LA. The address shown on his cards seemed to be studio addresses (Rock center and Universal Studios) and not home addresses like most people. My question is, do celebrities have some sort of special arrangement where they don't disclose their personal addresses on their ID cards? [more inside]
