Apply for new ID with one year extension letter?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I received a letter from the depart of motor vehicles requesting me to go in an renew my ID

My id expires once my 2 year GC Does... around february

I would rather wait for my 10 year GC and go in instead of do it now and get an ID that will only last one year....

Should I wait to see if I receive my GC soon or should I go because 10 year GC takes longer than 3 months to be approved?

If I go, is my current ID and green card and extension letter enough to receive a new ID?

What happens if I don't go and just wait for the 10 year GC to go in and renew?

Thank you !

Getting your ID renewed depends on the state in which you live. Some states will allow you to renew your license with your expired GC and your extension letter. Some states are really picky and will not let you renew until you get your 10-year card. Not sure exactly when you filed your ROC paperwork, but the MINIMUM length of time it takes to get the new GC is six months - and that's if you are filing at the California service center. And even the California center is started to lag. The Vermont Service Center is talking nearly 12 months.

I'd wait until February and make sure you have your extension letter in hand (maybe you do already). But you may just get a one-year renewal on your ID.

I'm going to make an assumption that you are talking about a state-sponsored ID - and NOT a driver's license. Don't ever drive without a valid driver's license.
