Texas LTC Requirements

#1

Post by Catntx » Thu May 03, 2018 10:32 pm

When I went through the LTC/CHL Class, we were told that if you had a license from another state and were visiting Texas they would honor the out of state license but if you moved to Texas or lived here that you have to obtain a Texas LTC the out of state would no longer be valid once you became a resident. True or not? The story on the news makes it sound like you can get the Virginia license and Texas would honor it even if your state of residence is Texas.

Texas doesn't discriminate between resident and nonresident licenses for reciprocity purposes.

Not correct.

This may be a situation-specific/semantics thing.
Virginia resident with Virginia resident license = OK in Texas
Texas resident with Virginia nonresident license = OK in Texas
Texas resident with Virginia resident license = not exactly OK in either state, correct?

Channel 8 also stated that person did not have to show proof of taking some instruction. That's not true a person must show that they took a online, NRA or other approved course. When submitting their paperwork.

Depends. Texas will still honor a valid out-of state license. But, the issuing state may cancel the license once it finds you are no longer a resident. For example, Texas honors the Illinois resident license, but Illinois will cancel the license when the person moves to another state.

It is correct in at least one instance. Oklahoma will not issue out of state licenses. Once a Texas residence is established, the Oklahoma license is invalid per Oklahoma.

I don't do those things to other people and I require the same of them.

You make a good point. Texas doesn't honor revoked or suspended licenses. If the other state revokes your license because you're no longer a resident of that state, or because you're convicted of robbing a bank, then Texas will not honor the invalid license.

However, if your out of state license is valid, then Texas doesn't care if it's a resident or nonresident license. FOr example, if you have a valid Arizona license, Texas reciprocity is the same whether you're a resident of Arizona, Texas or California.
This is my opinion. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
