Hello all,

I realize that there might be better places to post about this issue or get more information, but I thought you might be able to help me out.

Today I moved to Boston. I'm a US citizen with a passport and SSN, but have been living abroad for the past 15 years. As such, I have almost no record of existence here besides the aforementioned documents and a few other essentials.

I need to acquire a driver's license as soon as possible. The only thing I'm missing is proof of residence. Are you guys aware of any ways to speed up this process. I also don't currently have an address, a pay stub, school enrollment papers, or any of the other obvious choices. After consulting the RMV website I'm at a loss for what to do.

I would appreciate any wisdom you might be willing to share.

P.S. I've been here one day and I can tell you that the T sucks - y'all weren't kidding.

Where are you sleeping? Open up a bank account at an address of someone who can receive mail for you for the next month or so. Either wait for a statement or sign up to get a checkbook. Either of those counts. Or if you’re down to do some photoshopping, copy the rental lease from a buddy and put your name on it instead.
