Texas Drivers license Renewal w/ pending AOS

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My Husband has been issued a drivers license, but it expires on the date that his I-94 expires. If I am reading this right, it seems like it is possible to use the I-797(NOA1) for I-485 to renew it. http://www.flhsmv.gov/ddl/aila/acceptabledocuments.pdf (page 2 & 17)

I was just wondering if anyone in Texas has had success using their I-797 in obtaining or renewing a drivers license. :unsure: Thanks

If you live in Texas, why are you linking to a document from Florida?

This document states, like Florida, that to verify lawful presence, as an applicant for AOS, you need: "Immigration documentation with an alien number or I-94 number This can include but is not limited to a form I-797 indicating pending I-485 or pending application for adjustment of status."

http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/DriverLicense/documents/verifyingLawfulPresence.pdf

I do not know how long the license will be valid for, however.

Thanks for the replies. We've decided to just wait till his EAD comes in to renew his license. It's gonna suck having to all of the driving. :clock:


Does anyone have any idea of how long a person can drive in Texas with an international drivers license, e.g; UK, Spain?

To be truthful if he has a current driver license from anywhere and he you have liability insurance on the car, I forsee no issue with driving in Texas..

My drivers license did the same thing as his... They never told me it would expire that quickly, and I didn't think to ask. :oops: We're waiting for my EAD to renew mine too, but I'm still driving, just being very careful. I live in a teeny tiny town and the chances of being stopped are slim, and even then I'll just feign ignorance ;)
