Re: Tags in Ga or Fl?
I just looked at the Georgia Department of Revenue website, and they have listed $20 "Private School Bus" tags (plus local assessment, whatever that might be). If you can wrangle these, "only immediate family members" may ride with you.
I was interested in whether they require you to have GA license, Title, and tags if you are a resident (you do, 30 days to get them). They do not require "non-residents" (employed in GA plus kids in school ) or "visitors" to get GA tags.
A couple of thoughts: My brother-in-law left South Carolina last fall to full-time in his motor home. He became a South Dakota "resident" and got his plates in the mail. He did have to visit SD long enough to visit DMV for an eye test for his driver's license. A lot of other full-timers become Texas "residents." There are legal and financial considerations to any move, but this might be an option.
Another possibility I hate to suggest: If the law allows, "sell" your skoolie as scrap to a licensed dismantler, then "buy" it back with a salvage title, and "build" it into a motorhome. A lot of paperwork, and probable inpections. I would think selling it to a family member who can retitle it, and then buying it back would be easier and less risky. Or donate it to your father, and have him let you drive it.
Someone said "Making good decisions comes from experience, experience comes from bad decisions." I say there are three kinds of people: those who learn from their mistakes, those who learn from the mistakes of others, and those who never learn.
