Change in requirement for Non Resident Permit having a permit in home state


New member
Four years ago when I received my permit from NH there was no requirement to have a permit from the state you reside. When I went to renew this year I was sent back my packet with a cover letter telling me I couldn't apply without a copy of my resident permit. My home state (RI) is a may issue with ridiculous hoops to jump through that I have not had the time nor money to work through. I have permits from UT, AZ, FL, ME and NH this was acceptable back in 2012. Does anyone know when and why the requirement changed?

"Does anyone know when and why the requirement changed?"

I'm really not trying to be a smart ass, but does it really matter? If they've changed, they've changed, and you will have to navigate through whatever new requirements exist if you want to renew your NH permit, regardless of when or why they changed.

Your best bet to see if there's a way to renew without getting a RI permit is to call the NH agency who attached the cover letter to your packet. Maybe they can tell you another way to do it. I'm skeptical that they can since they wrote what they wrote in the letter, but it seems to me that the best place to start is with the agency, or individual within the agency, that denied your renewal application.

Best I can offer.
