DMV - Drivers License - Identification Card

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi to all you,

does somebody has any experiences with the DMV? I moved on the 25th of December to the USA and got married on the 28th of December. I sent in my application of adjusting my status and SSN as well the advanced travel document application. Now as I wanted to get everything done with paperwork, as I can't work right now. I went to the DMV to do my drivers license and got told at the DMV that is not a good idea to do so. I decided to ask at least for an identification card. At the front desk they told me it will be not a problem at all. WRONG so I finally got called up to the clerk on the window she took all the information and put it in her system - now she is asking me for my SSN - I told her that I don't have one yet - so she told me they are processing it right now that is the reason she can't issue me an ID Card. Her system is not able to issue me a ID Card without a SSN # because I am a legal alien - I think this is a good think to hear. But as I sent my mail to USCIS 2 days earlier to this appointment at the DMV, I doubt it that USPS deliver my mail at this time to USCIS. So how could that lady possible see that at her screen already - And I sort of need that card to cancel services back home in Germany. Is anyone here who can give me a heads up on this topic?

Thank you

I had to deal with dmv a month ago and sadly you need an ssn before you can get any id/dl from dmv. What the lady is looking at the screen was probably your ss info which is blank as you don't have an ssn yet. You should go to an ss office near you and request for an ssn and card. You should have it about a week or two, then go to dmv. Good luck!
