DL EXPIRING IN 2 WEEKS - PENDING EAD STATUS (green card applied)

17 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

My driver's license is expiring March 1st and I am trying to figure out a way to renew it. On the DMV website it says that I need verification of legal status but I still don't have my EAD card and I don't even have an approval notice yet. The only thing I have is the I-797C receipt. But they don't mention anything about them accepting that as proof.

What can I do? Anyone had the same issue before? I live in California. 

Thanks for your help!

How did you get a DL, but yes my understanding with CA is that you need EAD.

I take it your F1 expires 1st March.

Not sure what you have to show as a F1, do you have a valid I 94, would that work?

With a student visa I'd have to show a valid I-20, which is the document that proves that you're in school. But I don't have that since I graduated 😕

OK well then EAD it is, CA does have an option for illegals not sure how practical that is.

That option includes those who can not substantiate there entitlement to a regular license.

I'm not sure how relevant this is to your case. I recently got a driver authorization card (DAC), i'm too a November 2018 AOS filer (K1).

 

When I passed my drive test, I made sure to ask about the upgrade from a DAC card to a State DL. States vary- we all know that! In Nevada, she said that once I had my EAD, I can upgrade and bounce back and forth between a DAC card and State Licence (considering variable such as when my EAD expires + date I obtain my GC). I know CA may differ as per state but I'm pretty sure it does have something similar to a DAC. Maybe, it could be a temporary 'fix' until you get your EAD in order to prevent your DL expiring?

Thanks so much for sharing your experience! Yeah I think I found something similar. It's called AB 60 License and it's a license that they give you if you don't have all the required documentation for a regular one. So I'm gonna try and do that and then switch to a legit one once I get my EAD card.
