I'm getting ready to file I-751 next month,And my green card expires the same day as my driver license,So my question is how do I renew my Driver license without a current green card ? Do I have to wait until I receive the receipt letter from USCIS, If so how long does it take to receive that ?

Thank you !

In Georgia, the license they issue is valid only for the length of the GC or extension letter, unfortunately. I extended my license with the extension letter, no problem.

Tarik.... you shouldn't have a problem...

Presumably you're filing for ROC up to 90 days before your 2-year GC expires....

You'll recieve your NOA a few days after you file.

Take your GC with your NOA and your current license to the DMV, and they'll extend it for another year.

My license and GC expire at the end of this month.... I got my new license last week.

Old and Grumpy....But an American Citizen!!!

You should apply for your I-751 90 days before your 2 year gc and your driver's license will expire. You can apply for driver's license renewal using your "extension letter". The new driver's license will be good for only a year, you have to renew again after one year using your 10 year gc.

Hello friend, I don't know it depends on your state. What I tell you, it is that you have to drive in that way until you have the paper from immigration. I don't know if in your state you can get renewed your Driver's License with the NOA of immigration, if so, I think you have the permission during a few days. I suggest anyway that call or much better go to your office of License and explain your case; believe me, they might know what do, even better, they can give you a special permission where you can drive until your renewed green card comes up again. I hope my opinion helps you out, thanks and bye,

Submit the ROC one day after the window opens. Try to go to the DMV with your NOA if that does not work Schedule an infopass to get the stamo and they will most likley take that at the DMV. My hubbies expires 90 days after GC date hoping ( yeah right VSC ) we get the actual card before that date.

WHat state are you in??

Why is it that the only one who can stop the crying is the one who started it in the first place?
