Hi Anna,

 

I'm currently looking into this also and came across a bunch of threads on here with lots of useful information, so I’m surprised you haven’t found anything yet! Silly question, but did you use the search function? I just typed in “California drivers license”.

 

One post that I found really useful is linked below:

 

 

I hope this helps!

 

Stace 😊

Thank u!! I did but the answer is still not clear to me. An AB 60 is supposed to be for illegal or undocumented people, still figuring it out haha

It is definitely confusing!

 

I think for a K1 visa holder the AB60 appears to be the only solution other than wait for your green card and then apply. To apply for a full DL my understanding is that you need to prove permanent residency...which as K1 we can’t do yet. So although we are not illegal or undocumented we are also not yet permanent residents and so the AB60 covers us.

 

As I say this is just my understanding from what I have read on here and from what other people have posted as their experience in actually gaining the AB60, I could have misunderstood.

 

If you come across different information or somebody from DMV advises you otherwise please do let me know as I have an appointment at the DMV for the end of April to apply for the AB60 as want to be driving as soon as possible!

 

Thanks

What I do know is, that with an EAD you can get a permit, did you file for that?

Not yet as I don’t arrive until Saturday and we aren’t getting married until early April...EAD also takes approx 6 months to receive and I don’t want to wait that long to be driving (will be around 7 months by that point!)

AB60 is the way to go.
