Re: Can You Hold Two Driver's Licenses Simultaneously
The ticket was given using the FL license number because that is the number that Florida has assigned you for driving purposes. No matter where you might otherwise get a license, that number will represent you in FL.
If you never had a license in FL, the moment you got a ticket processed, their DMV would likely generate one for you anyway. This method keeps them from making multiple one-shot numbers for out of state travelers who come back and violate the law.
California does this. If you come here and get cited, you would be assigned a number by the DMV (here, it would begin with an "X") and that would represent you until such time as you obtained a license or ID in CA.
So, they issued it under your FL number because that is how the state identifies it as being you.
