CT state drivers Liscence

I'm a little confused. What documents does my fiance need to apply for a drivers liscence. In CT a foreign liscence from Germany is treated the same as an out of state liscence. So he does not need to retake the tests. According to the DMV website, you must apply within 30 days of establishing residence in CT. He needs to have proof of his legal status in the US, so his I-94 should suffice? But I am also reading here on the forums that he needs to have a EAD?

No first-hand CT experience but... I can almost guarantee you that his I-94 (which is only valid for 90 days) won't cut it - their site doesn't go into details on how long this needs to be valid for, but I'll bet they won't issue a DL valid for only 90-days (or however long the I-94 has remaining).

In almost all states now - you'll need at least the EAD.

I'd also be willing to bet there is at least a driving test in his future, if not certainly the written - if not then you're lucky. Karin (in Texas) had to do both the written and driving portions.

The kind of good news is - he is probably legally allowed to drive with his German DL in the mean time. :thumbs:

How about the 90 day EAD?

Hm, on the CT DMV site it says foreign licenses from Canada, Germany, and France can be transferred the same as an out of state license.

Well that is good news - it should be that way everywhere - someone in CT knows how difficult it is to get a German DL.. :thumbs:

Here is what the website says:

"Note: If you are not a citizen of the United States you will be required to show proof of your legal status in this country.

o Holders of a B1 or B2 Visitor's Visa are not eligible for a driver license or identification card unless a valid USCIS Employment Authorization Card and verification of an application pending for Lawful Permanent Residence is provided.

o Foreign students with an F1 Visa status must show USCIS document I-20 and verification of current enrollment in a Connecticut school.

o J1 Visa holders are required to show USCIS document DS2019.

o H1B Visa holders are required to show a valid USCIS Employment Authorization Card and an employee verification letter from a Connecticut employer.

o All applicants will be verified through USCIS for legal status before a driver license or identification card will be issued. "

"A valid license from Canada, Germany or France can also be transferred to Connecticut using the same procedures for an out of state license."

Ok I emailed the DMV, and here is what they said. After I said that he does have a valid German license.

"Then you just need to come into the DMV with your valid German license, social security card, valid passport and a piece of mail for proof of address and $117.00. We are reciprocal with Germany."
