Can a grandparent purchase a license for their grandchild without them being present?

Answer:

A resident may purchase gift licenses for his/her spouse and his/her children under the age of eighteen (18) living in the household. The purchaser must provide the proper residency identification for obtaining a resident license.

 

Grandparents would not qualify. This privilege is only for spouses and children under 18.

 

Nonresident licenses may be purchased by someone other than the applicant because residency certification is not required.
