Just went to DMV in Shalotte, NC to apply for a learner's permit. My point of entry date was last July 14th. The K1 visa will expire on Oct.11, 2017. (90 days period for k1 visa holder to get married). I did get married 19th of August..nyway, to get the long story short..they denied me coz it's less than 20 days for my K1 visa tovexpire. I mean.. my greencard is on the process. Showed them my Social security card, I-94, NOA cert, visa, passport, etc.. but they won't. Is there a law in DMV that they won't provide you one when it's less than 20 days before your K1 visa expires?

You actually have wait until you get your EAD/AP in order to get your DL. What country are you coming from?

We had the same issue when trying to get a DL in a small NC town and finally had to drive an hour to another DMV, got it that day but it did take like 2hr for them to verify things with the state. He got a DL without the EAD that was dated from his fingerprint date for 6 months.

 

 Go to the nearest big city because these little towns have often never dealt with pending immigration stuff.....for you that is Wilmington, and bring all of the things you brought and explain you want a driver license or permit based off of you biometrics date and pending AOS. They will give it to you but only for 6mo at a time til you get the actual green card. Don't forget to study for the permit test and bring insurance proof!!

My now-wife has 50 days left on her K-1 and we filed for AOS today. Last week she went to get a learner's permit (in PA) and they refused to do so because her name doesn't match SSA's database because she married. SSA won't issue a card in any name except what's in DHS's system, which won't update for a while. The DMV won't use the maiden name since that's not her name now either. A PA requirement to qualify for a learner's permit from K-1 status is being married to the USC spouse and to present their birth certificate (crazy, right?!). It's a chicken and egg issue...

 

Anyway, the point is that DMVs never make sense with immigration. They're state agencies trying to deal with federal issues (immigration), which always has issues. My suggestion is to either try another DMV office, request a supervisor, or wait until the EAD arrives.

Do I need to have an insurance before I can get a driver's permit?

I can't speak for 100% certainty with every state, but I never heard of any such requirement. Having a learner's permit or even a driver's license doesn't mean you own or actually drive a car...and insurance is on the vehicle.
