EAD VS DMV

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I get my EAD just 3 days ago and today I went to the DMV in order to apply for an ID/Lerner permit but my status Is not active they said. IS THE REASON MY SSN? I have not applied for the SSN yet. Do you think that's the reason why? I have to apply that first and later go to dmv?

They gave me a SAVE case number in order to check it in 3 days if my status is active or not...

Anyone had this type of situation before?

Thanks in advance...

For NJ, SSN is one of the identification DMV looks for with your 6-point ID: http://www.state.nj.us/mvc/Licenses/DocumentSelector/index.htm

Aside from that, if you just recently received your EAD card, your name might not be in the current SAVE database. That's why they are manually waiting for a response though DHS verification. From my experience, this took a week.

However, since you don't have your SSN yet, I don't think they will let you go through with the exams even if your name is confirmed with the SAVE. So I would recommend that you go apply for your SSN first.
