Whenever the you feel up to it and when the state will let you. Most states want at least the EAD before you can get a permit or a DL.

In California the driver's permit is valid for 1 year after passing the written test. Once you also pass the behind-the-wheel test the DMV issues you the DL document which is valid until the date on your I-94 or EAD/AP card. With the GC you get the 10-year DL document. So if you think you'll have to wait much longer for the GC (and if your state's DMV is similar) you may decide to postpone the written test so that your driver's permit remains valid until you become LPR (to secure the 10-year DL).

I applied for my DL with my EAD and got a full 5 year license, which is the maximum for a CA DL.
