Is it absolutely imperative that my address on my Medical Card and Driver's License matches?

What'll happen is we will be moving and stay in a corporate apartment until we get our permanent address.

I'll wind up getting my license and WA medical card that'll have the temporary address on it....following registering my vehicle and getting the WA license so I can go straight to work.

This happened in OK. My license and medical card had the temp addresses on them, but we were in a different apartment. Same apartment complex, but different apartment. update my paperwork, would I need to update my license first and then medical card? Or medical card then license? would I get just the address changed on the medical card?

Your medical card is fine and the addresses do not have to match.

License number may be an issue though. When you apply for a job, they usually send you for a new physical so that shouldn't be a problem.

Go to the DMV and see what they say. States have different rules on how they handle this stuff.


Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.


Department of Motor Vehicles, Bureau of Motor Vehicles

The state agency that handles everything related to your driver's licences, including testing, issuance, transfers, and revocation.
