Driver's License with Green Card

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have already received my green card and have completed my online education course, but I'm confused by some of the process.

 

How did you guys get a learner's permit to schedule to get in line online? Or can we not get that? 

 

Do you just walk in to the DPS and say you want to schedule a driving exam and wait?

You didn't mention which state you are trying to get a drivers license in.  Every state is different.   When my husband arrived:

  • No appointment
  • No learners permit
  • No driving test
  • Took an exam on computer, eye exam and a "recognize the signs without the words" test.   
  • Showed Dutch drivers license, greencard and other docs are required.   
  • Got a temp drivers license and real one was mailed to him within 10 days (like anyone in my state).

This was in North Carolina.    Your state may be different.   You can try calling them.

Depends completely upon in which state you are applying........a search of that state's drivers license procedures should get the information you want.

I would highly suggest that you use the Texas online appointment system to schedule an appointments or taking tests........I have used it several times, and it cuts waiting time significantly.  It's called "Get in line online"

Thank you missileman, I did see that, but it's asking for a Driving License Number. How do I get that?

Okay, thank you!

 

All it says is that no offices can serve me. I think I'm just going to do a walk-in.

OK...Good luck......hopefully, you will not have to wait a long time.....but to make an appointment, I would suggest trying to get in line online at 8:30 am........they normally open the appointments for that day only....Once that day's appointments are full, they close the online system until the next morning.....

Difficult to get an appt

 

To get a learners permit, go to the drivers license, take a number, wait.

Make sure you have ID, SS card, and proof of car insurance 

Once you have a learners permit you can be added to insurance at no charge.

 

THEN:  Take a private driving course.  Use one who can give you an official driving test so you dont have to schedule a test from the DMV

 

They’ll give you the test, a certificate of completion for the course, AND the certificate that you passed the driving test.

 

Return to the drivers license office and apply for the license.

Texas will let you waive SSN, but you have to sign some type of paper. Just a FYI
