Drivers Permit/License

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am looking to apply for my GA Drivers permit. As i came into the USA on a K1 and will be applying for AOS, EAD and AP within the next couple fo weeks I was hoping to get my drivers permit done and out of the way. But....it seems according to the DMV and a post or two here that my permit will only be valid until my k1 runs out, Feb 2nd 2016, 4 weeks from now.

Would i be better if waiting until i get my EAD and then apply? I hold a full Irish drivers license and an International Drivers permit. Could I apply now, do test etc, pay fee and then just renew when EAD comes through?

Am thinking of waiting till i get my EAD and then apply and then hopefully it will be valid for a year at least

Any suggestions?

I applied my DL when I had my i94 straitened out, and yes, they issued me one but it was expired when my i94 expired, now that I have my EAD/AP combo card, me and my husband went to renew my DL yesterday, no problem at all.. You can do it and they will give you a year.. Just wait 10 days after your combo card issued so it is sure that it's already posted in your alien registration.. That was they've told me..
