The REAL ID allows K-1 visa holders to get state ID. But it must be done with planning and quickness.

Nebraska your Aos have to be verified as pending. Most the time they can verify it.

Yeah that's Nebraska but other states will allow the person to get a ID regardless. That's why the state is imperative when asking a question such as this.

Didn’t see a state in the OP. 

 

Regardless my comment about the REAL ID Act is true. States are free to give REAL ID to K-1 visa holders. 

 

Finally: plonk.

My fiancee had no problem getting a real ID state ID about a week after getting here. Problem is it was limited term and expired when her I94 did. We just went back to the DMV this past Friday and renewed it because we received her EAD AP card, and now it is good for a year. Once green card shows up she can get A full term 8 year license. But it works because it is better than her carrying her passport around all the time.

Didn't say anything to the contrary but the document standard in my state makes it impossible until the I485 is filed
