Driver's License in Oklahoma after entering U.S. on K1

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance arrived in the U.S. on July 8 with his K1 visa. We are going next week to apply for his social security card. He has a Canada driver's license. Does anyone know in Oklahoma when he can get his U.S. driver's license? And does he have to take our driver's test or since he already has a Canada license do they just issue him an Oklahoma license? I've looked all over the DMV website and I'm just not sure of the time frames.

I had the same question and this is what I found out on the Oklahoma DPS website

https://www.dps.state.ok.us/dls/dlid.htm#prim_us Hopefully this will help you.

I read that and the part I wasn't sure about was where it says proof of identity for foreign national or "legal permanent resident alien" I don't know if that means wait until you have a green card, which could be a year or longer, or something else. I've read in some posts where it could possibly be after you receive your EAD. I also didn't find whether he would have to take our test here or since he already has a Canada license he wouldn't have to test.
