well, i am getting to that, but i still need some driving practice before i go take the DMV test

OK...then go get either a Learner's Permit or a state ID until you are ready to get the licence. My husband got his State Id and is studying for the written test.

i already passed the written test. ugh i guess ill just stick to my gigantic passport for now.

I was under the impression that the EAD could be used as an ID! Maybe I was wrong.

You can get a state ID with your EAD. I remember how frustrating it was for me with my passport - when I used it as an ID, people looked at me as if I had two heads :(

You could be right, I think it depends on the state. Here in Massachusetts bars, you must have a Mass driver's license or Mass state liquor ID to be served. Technically, not even a passport is acceptable here.

Edit: I just checked and a passport is ok here, but an out of state license or an EAD is not. To the OP: I'd check the liquor laws of your state.

Maybe it's a silly question :unsure:

Can I use my learner permit as an ID? or Should I apply both? Learner permit and state ID ?

Thank you (F)

A photo ID that has your DOB on it should get you into a bar. I've never ever heard otherwise. Weird.

My husband always used his Canadian DL as ID to buy beer/get into bars, etc. It often confused people, but he was never told he couldn't use it for that purpose. Am I missing something here??? Does the EAD not have your DOB? Sorry, I don't have one to look at currently.

Well it depends on the bar really. People working entry are not always the sharpest tools in the shed (note that I've worked on the door of a California bar!), and often when faced with an unusual ID will simply reject it rather than take a risk that it might be fake. Here in PA the law states that any government ID, state ID or passport is acceptable, but a bar downtown still has troubles with Passport, making you fill out some pointless form, which is completely unnecessary.

So really the drivers license is always the best ID for getting in bars! That or have crows feet like I do. ;)

It has always gotten James into any bar/let him purchase any alcohol. Never had anyone really ask what it is either (I always worry they won't think it's a real ID). Only bad thing is the birth is printed on dark letters on a dark background so it's hard to see, but so far no problems!

On a side note, we did once have a girl say she thought his UK drivers license was a fake when trying to buy alcohol, and then when I tried to buy it instead she said no, I'll just give it to him. I was pissed, why would you fake a foreign license for an ID? :P
