    Yes you can drive in PA and Delaware. You can drop off in NY but not pick up as you probably all ready know. A friend of mine also had a ride from EWR Airport to Connecticut & received a request while there. So I assume we can pick up there also. I am the opposite of you.  I live in Philly with PA license but drive in NJ. When I started driving 2.5 yrs ago I drove in Philly, surrounding areas, and Bucks County. After a year & a half I started driving in NJ. Been doing 98% of my driving in NJ for a little over a year. PA has no specific TL& C laws and neither does NJ. No special license or permits. Uber and Lyft send you ride request. Lyft & Uber has never questioned me or sent me any notices. My friend lives in PA Suburbs (Bucks County) he also drives in NJ no problem.   I dont think they care. I think certain areas like NY have specific laws as some other Cities/States do. That is why we cant drive in those Cities.

    Sign up where your permanent residence is....

    Sign up where your permanent residence is. If you have a NJ license, registration, and inspection and sign up with a PA address it will be a nightmare. If you are just in PA for 2/4 yrs for school and you plan to go home for holidays and move back after you graduate just leave address, insurance, license, registration in NJ. Why change all that if its temporary. You dont need the added cost of all that paperwork & you would have to get s PA license. So not worth all that.  It's not against Uber or Lyfts TOS to live in one city or state (permanent residence) & drive in another state (for school, on vacation, or its a busier city or state). 

    Sorry my post are always long. If you have any further questions please feel free to post them & I will try to answer. If I dont know the answer I can direct you to someone who can help you. If you need any help or any tips be happy to help you:) Good Luck!
