It's not that useful to compare from bio appointment to card - because if someone goes in for an early walk-in, they might end up waiting a long time for EAD because a walk-in doesn't usually speed things up, though it can. A better estimate is from the time of initial filing, which is 2-3 months. Each state has its own DL requirements, so check with your local DMV.


AOS for my husband
8/17/10: INTERVIEW DAY (day 123) APPROVED!!

ROC:
5/23/12: Sent out package
2/06/13: APPROVED!

count 90 days from the day they received your documents :) it usually takes less than 90 days. it doesn't really matter when she did her biometrics.. :) and she can get her driver's license with EAD card in hand. but it really depends what.. check your DMV if she needs more documents to be able to get he DL :)

Yup, like everyone else said, it depends. My husband's card production was ordered the same day as his early walk-in for biometrics - but that's because our area is very backed up and we waited two over two months for biometrics, so most likely they were just waiting on biometrics to process. You can check out our timeline for how long it took overall, though - I think NOA received to EAD in hand was about 2.5 months.
