NOA letter extension question (DL)

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So David recently got his new driver's license (since Virginia only lets you have a DL as long as you prove that you're authorized to stay here, so it was expiring in September) and said the lady refused to put the date down as one year from his initial green card expiry date, but put down one year from the NOA date (so, June 2013).

Is it one year from the NOA date or one year from the green card? If from the NOA date, are people getting that I-551 stamp?

In that case, if we go over June (which may be likely considering VSC processing times), do we make an infopass appointment to extend it?

That's interesting. My Virginia DL was issued for the standard 3.5 years (and I got it at the Alexandria branch, no less). I got it a week or so after I immigrated to the U.S., back in March of 2010. You might want to go back to the DMV and talk to a supervisor. Unless things have changed since March 2010, David should be able to have his DL for 3.5 years.

Really? We went to the Alexandria one too!

Actually...thinking about it now, I think they DID get more strict about that kind of thing. David got his DL in 2011 (he had never driven before and needed some lessons) and everyone was handed a pamphlet when they got in the door about "new requirements."

p.s. I'm originally from Seattle. I <3 Vancouver. Wish we were on the west coast right now...

Ah, that explains it then. Lucky for me that I got in before the requirements change!

I lived in Alexandria for a couple of years, and while I liked it (and think the DC metro area is loads better than the Norfolk / Virginia Beach area), I sometimes miss the West Coast too. I keep trying to get my wife to warm up to the idea of living in California (I lived there for half a year), but she's always been an East Coaster. And some battles are just too futile to fight... :P
