Recommended Posts

Hi all, my wifes conditional greed card and driver license preatty much expired on same time and DMV wont let her renew untill she gets new green card even that she is been extended for 1 year, we mailed the NOA to them and showed in office, but they want the green card thats valid for 60 days or more, bunch of A-holes. They sent us a renewal notice a month before they both expired. Has anyone alse gone thru this BS?

When it comes to dealing with govt offices, it's good to remember that not everyone who works there knows every rule. Keep trying til you find someone who is actually familiar with a situation like yours. Ask if they're sure they have it correct. Ask for their supervisor. Ask for THAT person's supervisor.

I'd go back and tell them that their website clearly says a notice of action is acceptable, speak to a supervisor. Right here under "Birth date verification and legal presence requirements" it says "Notice of Action (I-797 Approved Petition) - must indicate approved extension of stay or change in status that grants temporary or permanent residency, or indicates that an original, duplicate or renewal Resident Alien card is forthcoming." so the NOA should be good enough.

I plan to do that if the DMV gives me any problems when I go renew my license.

I agree with the last post. Go to a different DMV. If they don't know the answer, ask for a supervisor. It happens more frequently than people think.

1/18/2013 - Married

3/5/2013 - Filed AOS, EAD & AP

3/7/2013 - USCIS Chicago rec'd applications

3/12/2013 - USCIS sends NOA1 email

I would recommend doing the following this time:-

Go next time try to look for different DMV and try to apply for Identification ID + Driver License simultaneously.

When you do that you will get your Driver License 5 years instead of 1 year and then when you get a green card go back again and get it for 5 years.

I did that when I was on EAD and got my CA license for 5 years when I was on EAD not even GC. I know many other people in CA did that as well and all of them got 5 years license on EAD by applying for Identification card first.

ID Card will be valid for 6 years while license will be valid for 5 years after your Birthday.

This workaround worked pretty well in Pleasanton and Walnut Creek , CA.

I believe all driver licenses in CA are issued centrally from Sacramento so that doesnt matter.
