Default Two forms of ID, but old address on DL?

I have a CA state drivers license which has an old address on it. In the past I have provided my CA DL + CA vehicle registration for my two forms of ID.

Will this still suffice if my DL has an old address?

Or do I need my CA state DL(w/ old address) + vehicle registration(current address) + an additional form of ID with the current address?

Some will accept it with the old address. Some will take the change of address brown card. Some won't take either and require that it match. Your best bet is to get a new card with it matching if you want the best possible chance of a deal not falling through because their ffl won't take your stuff. Happened to me like 4 times already.

Remind me to never buy a firearm there.

Valid CA ID should have been fine for a Long Gun.

Valid CA ID and proof of residency is all you need for a handgun.

DMV Print out is out of line

Identification is to verify age only; the printed address on the license does not need to be current when buying a rifle or pistol; as long as you notified the DMV of your address change your fine. When you buy a handgun you need to show proof of residency (Vehicle Registration, Utility Bill, Lease Agreement ECT ECT ECT)

Some dealers ask for a bunch of things they don't need because they figure better safe than sorry (or maybe they dont know). You can always not give them what they ask for, and they can not sell you the weapon

Here is some inf from the DOJ:

All firearms purchases and transfers, including private party transactions and sales at gun shows, must be made through a licensed dealer under the Dealer Record of Sale (DROS) process. California imposes a 10-day waiting period before a firearm can be released to a buyer or transferee. A person must be at least 18 years of age to purchase a rifle or shotgun. To buy a handgun, a person must be at least 21 years of age, and either 1) possess an HSC plus successfully complete a safety demonstration with the handgun being purchased or 2) qualify for an HSC exemption.

As part of the DROS process, the buyer must present "clear evidence of identity and age" which is defined as a valid, non-expired California Driver's License or Identification Card issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles. A military identification accompanied by permanent duty station orders indicating a posting in California is also acceptable.

If the buyer is not a U.S. Citizen, then he or she is required to demonstrate that he or she is legally within the United States by providing to the firearms dealer with documentation that contains his/her Alien Registration Number or I-94 Number.

Purchasers of handguns are also required to provide proof of California residency, such as a utility bill, residential lease, property deed, or government-issued identification (other than a drivers license or other DMV-issued identification).

(PC Section 12071)

so if i do what it says on the dmv website...

How to notify DMV when I change my address

Law states that you must notify DMV within 10 days of changing your address. There is no charge to change your address, and you may notify DMV by any of the following ways:

Complete your change of address online.
Call any DMV office at 1 (800) 777-0133 and request that a change of address form be mailed to you. It will take 5 days for you to receive it. Complete the information required on the form, then mail it to the address listed at the top of the form.
Download the Change of Address form DMV 14, complete the information, and mail it to the address listed at the top of the form.
Visit any DMV office, complete a change of address form, and give it to a technician. The technician will give you a Change of Address Certificate card (DL 43) to complete and carry with your license.

If you do 2 or 3 above, type or write in ink your new address on a small piece of paper, sign and date it. Carry this piece of paper with your license. Do not tape or staple the change of address information to your driver license.

will that count? just making sure cause i have the newer license and recently bought a home last year.

I have this brown piece of paper and more than two FFL's have told me it is not valid as a proof of residency by itself, or accompanied by the ID.

Looks like I will get a state ID card, I'd rather use that instead of waiting on a new drivers license.

I was told less than a week ago by an employee and Salinas Hunter Supply that if the address on your ID is current then that is all the proof/ID you need for a long gun, no bill or anything to prove residency. Does anyone know if he is correct?

Best bet, check with the FFL who will be doing the transaction. I used a vehicle registration and a voter registration with my new address on it. This was at Target Masters in Milpitas.

I have my PO box on my DL and registration because I don't get US mail where I live. Just bought a G19 with DL, PGE bill and brown card from DMV with my physical address.

Lease with new address, Driver License with old address worked for me at River City. (Don't want to switch license since I'm on a short term lease up here)

They're now requiring addresses to match and the guy recommended I get the change of address form from DMV.

Last one I did (PPT) they would not accept the brown change of address card.

They did however, accept two vehicle registrations as two proofs, since they are two separate government issued documents. I would check with the FFl if you plan to use this method though, as the clerk didn't think it was ok, but the manager said yes, it is.

Do you have more than one vehicle registered in your name?
