  • Getting a drivers license with EAD

    Just a little heads up for everyone that recently got their EAD card and is trying to get a driver's license. My EAD got approved on 10/16/2020 and i received it on 10/23/2020. Anyways today i was trying to get my drivers license and the DMV couldn't verify it in the government data base that my EAD is approved, they said because its relatively new so they couldn't verify it. So i wasted 2 hours going there and waiting so they can tell me that they will give me a call when it clears up in the system. So i just wanted to give everyone a heads up they might face the sime situation so you might wanna wait a couple of weeks before you apply for your drivers license. Also Uscis's website for checking your case status its not updated as well maybe it has to do with all that.

    Did you get your social security number yet? I believe once you your social security number the DMV will be able to verify you.

      I got my drivers license in NYC and i do not have a social or Ead yet.

      basically you have to verify that you are a resident with a bill and stuff like that. It depends on the state

        I had this issue before with one of my EADs. I had to call in and do a service request.

        You might be able to convince the office to do a SAVE request - instructions for Texas here: https://www.dps.texas.gov/DriverLice...ulPresence.pdf
