Limited Term Legal Presence

All original and pending driver license or identification cards will expire on the expiration date of his/her birth date and legal presence document (BD/LP) issued by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Your BD/LP document must have an expiration date 30 or more days from your application date. If your BD/LP document has an expiration date less than 30 days, you will not be able to start a driver license or identification card application.

If your BD/LP document has an expiration date of less than 60 days, you may complete your licensing requirements (written/vision/driving tests), but you will need to submit another BD/LP document with an expiration date of 60 days or more before your driver license or identification card is mailed to you.

Before your limited term driver license expires, the department will mail out an “extension” letter with instructions on how to complete your application for a driver license.

If your current name no longer matches the name on your birth date/legal presence document, see "True Full Name" and "How to Change Your Name" for more information.

In the meantime, he should apply for a Social Security number.

It says on their website that his driver license will expire when his I-94 expires: :o

Upon verification of temporary lawful presence in the U.S., an individual will receive a license with a Limited Term designation that will expire when the period of lawful presence expires.

My link.

Here's what their website says about requiring a Social Security number:

Individuals who have applied for and been denied or who have never applied for, been issued or assigned a SSN may complete a Social Security Affidavit. The affidavit will be available at the driver license office and must be sworn to before an authorized Department employee.

My link.
