GENERAL INFORMATION FOR PERSONS PREPARING THE AFFIDAVIT OF RESIDENCE IN MAINE:
Maine law requires a person to be physically residing in Maine in order to be eligible for a Maine driver’s license or
identification card. Residence in Maine may be proven by documents such as tax returns, paystubs, utility, leases,
mortgage agreements and other objective documents that show the applicant’s full legal name together with a physical
residential address in Maine. This affidavit serves as an alternative for those individuals who may not have any of the
suggested documents to prove Maine residency. Affidavits may be completed by employers, landlords, clergy, neighbors,
school teachers, co-workers, or any other individual who has personal knowledge of the applicant, and knows that s(he) is
currently living in Maine. The Bureau of Motor Vehicles may contact you to verify the information you provide in the form.
Knowingly providing false information on this form is a Class D crime.
