AOS and buying a car.

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello. I just recently sent my adjustment of status through spouse (didn't receive even "case number" yet), before I was on J1 visa which is overstayed already.

Me and my husband bought a new car and we want to register it on both names and insure too( but I don't have us drivers license, I have just from my home country(translated in English)

So can I make us drivers license or I need to wait uscis "case number" or EAD?

Or I need insure and register car on my passport?

Thank you

Hi, what date did you send the forms in specifically, as it normally takes 1-2 weeks to receive a letter back from them.

Then as for the US drivers license, check with your local DMV and find out what is needed for you to get one, some states only require the i 797c (acknowledgement receipt for your filling of AOS)

Hi,

There is no US driver's license. Driver's license are state specific. Each of our 50 states have their own rules. Whether you can get a driver's license here will depend on the rules in your state.

Most states will only give licenses with legal status. Some states will issue licenses to illegals aliens (including visa overstays). You may have to wait until you get a green card to get a driver's license if your state does not give them to those without legal status.

You can not insure or register the car to your passport. Your passport is not a driver's license.

In most (if not all), a car can only be registered to and insured to a licensed driver. No reason to register or insure a person who can not legally drive it when the person does not have a valid driver's license.

Your foreign license does not count since you have decided to permanently reside in the U.S. States requires their residents (even illegal ones) to have their licenses. Residents can not use out-of-state driver's licenses.

Best of luck.

Hi,

you should check Colorado dmv web-site. I looked it up and can tell that you will need to wait for your EAD before you can apply for Colorado DL. It says on their website that you need your passport with valid visa, but since you visa has expired, so you gotta wait for EAD. You can check all the information here:

About your second question. You won't be able to register a car without valid US driver license or permit. And as long as I remember you also can not insure your car without it. Anyaway check all the info with your state DMV office, because I think it may vary from state to state.

Здравствуй Лариса.

Мені приємно зустріти українців на сайті.

Ти можеш зареєструвати свій авто, але твій чоловік повинен узнати цю інформацію для тебе.

Тому, що багато нелегалів купують авто і реєструються. Тут законом прописано, що нелегали мають великі права, і право на нелегальний труд також. Мені розповідав мій чоловік.
