    Default CCW Proof of Residency Validity

    So as of right now I'm still living at home with family (Thanks pandemic) and as such I don't receive any bills in the mail to use as proof of residency. Now I can't imagine any way in hell I'm the only person who lives at home still who's ever tried to apply for their CCW permit, so does anyone know what else is acceptable in Bucks County? Their signup online specifically only mentions bills addressed to myself.

    If you're over 21, still live at your parents and don't have a driver's license, you might be the only one.

    Fill out the application. Turn it in.

    Attach your government ID.

    Call it even. Take screen shots.

    If you have problem, get a lawyer.

    First I heard about the proof of residency in Bucks. is this something new? Looking on their site a Pa drivers license is ok unless it was issued in the last 6 month? Then you need to prove you residence?

    I guess my timing was OK because I just filled out the application , showed my drivers license and had my permit in less than 1/2 hour. Same with the renewal with a democratic sheriff (who was OK be me).

    Not looking forward to the next sheriff.

    It is possible the options are one or the other, but with the way it reads on the screen shot I understand the OPs concern.

    I believe that the OP misunderstands the requirement. It looks to me like you need one of those lines listed, not two or more.

    Yeah this was the first I was hearing of it as well. It could be poor phrasing on the site's end but it makes it sound like it's requiring both and I was hoping to reach out to others before throwing my application out and seeing what happens. In any case might as well just roll the dice and hope for the best since it seems to be a weird situation.

    Entirely possible. It's phrased in a way where it made it sound like all were required not one or the other. I was uncertain so I was just looking to reach out for information from those more familiar than I am with the situation before I jump into it.

    A driver's license is all any of us are using. If you lived out of state but had a second residence in PA, that's where the bills come into play.
