Driver's License w/ AP only (no EAD)?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm in a kind of peculiar situation where my EAD renewal was delayed and I received my AP sooner (as a piece of paper instead of a card). I was wondering if this AP document would be enough for me to get a Driver's License again? My wallet was stolen with all my IDs in it, and I was hoping to have my DL replaced soon, but my EAD is taking a very long time.

 

I'm based in California, if that information helps.

If you’re only replacing it because it was stolen you just need a valid ID. They already have you in the system and you should be able to get a duplicate after reporting it stolen to the current validity of the previous DL. If you’re renewing it because it’s about to expire, it really depends on your state. Some states require the actual cards and not extension letters and whatnot. Just make a trip to the DMV and ask.

I got the new Real ID DL, which is connected to my legal status in the US (since it's used to fly domestically). So it expired when my EAD/AP expired, which was last Sept 18th. I guess I can just make a trip to the DMV... it's just a pain if it turns out they can't help me in the end, since there's always a long wait... so I was hoping someone here would know, to save me at least 3 hours of waiting. 😅I can also try to call tomorrow, I guess. Hopefully that helps...
