Default Drivers License based on EAD

This query is for a friend of mine.

His labor and 140 was pre-approved.
In jun 2007 he applied for 485 / EAD and AP.
He got EAD, is working on it.
He also used AP to go to india and back.
His H1 is already expired this month.

All he has is a new AP based new i94 which expires on the day his EAD expires.

Now his drivers license is expiring.
Does anyone know the documents he will be required to submit to DL center to get DL extended.

Also the most important thing is, can the DL somehow be extended for more than 1 year. Because doing this every year is a pain.

Thanks in advance.

Default Driver's license in Ohio

Hi Guys,
My experience with driver's license renewal in Ohio with EAD/expired-H1 was a pleasant surprise.
All I said was that I was a green card applicant, showed them my I-485 application receipt, and got a license valid for 4 years.

Smooth. What a surprise.

Default DL is state thingie

DL is essentially controlled by individual states. In MD they just give you 5 years irrespective of the visa expiry date. Only thing is that you need to have I-94/EAD + a visa (expired is fine). I have recently extended my MD drivers license thru mail.

In VA, I heard they would give only until the expiry of the EAD/H1B.

Default MA license Nightmare!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello Guys,

Here is my situation, it might help to many, who are planning to move to MA..

My background License history:
I had two full term (4 years) license in PA (I guess when I came to USA they used to give full term license) and got a 2 year license recently in NC since my EAD was valid till 2010 only.

Now 1 month ago moved to MA:
1- First time I went to RMV (same as DMV), very rude person, your license is temp and we can do transfer for you. You need to take written and road test again. I argued that I had full term licenses and this is not temp license. This is based on my visa and issue me till the validity of visa. Person got angry and told me, don't tell me the rules. This is temp license and let me make sure I put you on the system, so you can get any where else.
I spoke to her supervisor and person told me the same. I came back and thought, this person might be rude and went to different RMV next day.

2- Second day, different center and they told the same and I thought since this the rule let me start the process and take the written test and road test.

Now the problem-
They took all the paperwork and made copy and started with my wife for test. She went to take a test and she didn't allow me to so by saying that there is a hold for you at other place and you need to go there.

Since my wife was not prepared, she failed and STRANGE THING, THEY KEPT HER LICENSE and didn't return. I asked that how is she going to drive etc. We can't give license back.
Now we are stuck, until she passes her written and road test.

Same thing is going to happen for me. I am in very painful situation and don't know the way out.

If anyone has similar situation, please share.

ALSO, PEOPLE WHO ARE MOVING TO MA, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU KNOW THIS CEAZY RULE AND BE ARE PREPARED

GOD BLESS TO US ALL..

Hey - can you please tell me where you applied for the 4 yr DL. I have always got my DL extended only till I-94 expiry or of late - till my EAD expiry. I renew my DL in Columbus. Can you please share your experience as to where you got your DL renewed?

I think PA is very liberal in issuing the Dr. Lic. Last year (2008) I cam back from India using AP and I received my Dr. Lic renewed upto 2012. I just applied online printed the form, went Norristown (near King Of Prussia), showed him old unexpired Dr Lic, He took my picture and issued me Dr Lic..

This is why I dont want to move in other state. If I had to then I will keep my permanent address in PA, twice in a month will come back here.

Default MD Drivers License - All is well that ends well

As previously mentioned in this forum, a year back (almost) when my visa stamping had not expired I had approached the MD MVA for my license. Due to a last/first name issue in my passport they declined the DL. Now after going through the name change process in US and India and getting the court order, I re-approached the MVA. After multiple levels of screening and approvals taking full 4 hrs, finally I got my 5 year license this Thursday.

MD license rules changed and there was lack of clarity for everybody some weeks back. Now there seems to be better clarity. Having SSN and i-94 is important as I felt.

If some one is in the same boat, I hope this info helped.

Anybody have any recent experience in getting a TX drivers license in Houston while on EAD?
I currently have a PA driver's license that is about to expire in Dec.
