I have thought of changing to VA residence and getting a VA DL, but I'm not sure what the effect will be on other residence related matters. For example, would I have to change the registration for my vehicles (VA charges an annual asset tax), change my health insurance (I'm retired and on private insurance), change my car insurance, pay taxes in both States, change my consulting contract so my income goes to VA, etc. I plan to call my insurance providers with these questions to see what is involved, and compare taxes.
I want to keep my NJ house for now as house prices are rising and my 94 year old Mom still lives in NJ.
In NJ, the bad guys are armed and the households are alarmed. In VA, the households are armed and the bad guys are alarmed.
