Driving in California with a foreign DL (while waiting in AOS)

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

 

trying to determine if I can legally drive in Sacramento using my foreign DL while waiting for AOS from K-1 visa. The handbook says I’m not required to carry a CA DL if I’m not a resident of California. And “residency” is usually closely related to taxation. I’m not having any legal status yet, not having EAD and hence not paying taxes. Any ideas? Some legal resources would be super helpful as well as experience of those driving with foreign DL.

 

P.S. I failed to get SSN before my I-94 expired so I was denied SSN and can’t apply for CA dL at the moment.

 

thanks!

No, you need a CA driver license. Residence for driving purposes in CA is clear (unlike residence for tax purposes).

Some users have mentioned the AB 60 option:

The application has a "I do not have a SSN option." The license can later be converted to a regular license with either an EAD or GC.
