DL Renewal after GC - California

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm in the state of California... I recently received my GC and need to renew my license as it is only valid for 1 year (EAD/AP).

I'm going to a DMV that's about an hour away because I couldn't get an appointment for the day I can go. Just to make sure I don't get turned away, I want to ensure I have all my documents. Do I need to bring anything other than my current license and green card?

I do not know about CA, but in NJ, one needs several "points" worth of Identification. For my wife's State ID (she doesn't want to drive) we brought the following and she was not turned away:

1. Current Passport

2. Birth Certificate

3. AP/EAD Card & Green Card

4. Social Security Card

5. 1 (unopened) Utility Bill with her name on it (Phone Bill)

6. 1 (unopened) Statement from our shared Bank with her name on it

7. Marriage License (receipt) and Marriage Certificate

8. My Birth Certificate and Passport (To prove I am her husband).

I just brought my temp driver's license, Green Card and Social Security (plus the fee...again). It was renewed for ten years (until my green card expires).

Nothing else.
