Default Driver's License renewal in CA, no EAD

Hi.

Does anyone know how to renew the Driver's License in CA without EAD. My Wife's license is about to expire and she doesn't have EAD. H-4 is expired on Passport.

I see that I can mail the renewal application and its not asking any document but I m not sure if that will work.

Please reply if anyone has any information regarding this.

Thanks

If they didn't ask for something why do you have to reveal more than you have to?

Yep .. I renewed mine using internet (after DMV sent me the renewal letter).. I got it easily.

No need to worry .. DMV will send you renewal notice 2 months before ur DL expires.

worst come to worst is if you are not lucky then you have to go to DMV and do another written test

If your address is current, you will get a renewal notice and you can renew it online for another 5 yrs.

But if you don't get the renewal notice walk into your nearest DMV and get it renewed as anybody else who is GC holder or citizen. For renewal they are not checking any documents in CA. I renewed my license this path 2 months ago, since my address on file with DMV was not updated somehow.

BTW, that only happens if you have an outstanding Ticket in your name - it happened with me - they told me to take the written test first time I went for renewal (I hadn't completed traffic school to void my ticket) - so, I completed the traffic school and went for the test after about a week or so - as soon as I reached the counter to get the score; the lady asked me why did I take the test.......she said you don't need to - she threw away the question paper and renewed the DL!!!!

Thanks for all the reply. I haven't got the renewal notice in the mail yet. The license is expiring on 09/18. In CA DMV site there is another option to renew it by mail. I m going to try that .

hey, i had my green card already but i found out that it has incorrect data (DOB), USCIS advised me to apply for I-90 to replace it. the problem is it will take some time to have it done (up to six months according to USCIS), the DMV is not honoring that green card which has incorrect data, can there be other means to apply to the DMV as i need to have a driver's license as soon as possible for work? thanks...

RANT WARNING

If you dont have an EAD, and your H1 B case is filed and is waiting for apporval, you wont have a your license during that period, I am one that is in that situation. I talked to the DMV folks but they wont accept the H1 B extension receipt , they need the I - 797, so basically i cannot drive for next 2 months. A couple of member suggested it was very easy for them, i guess i am being targeted
As of now i feel really privileged staying here , no license, no green card, been here for past 10 years and have a post graduate degree from a US university. I guess even if you are good professionally and academically it does not matter, so much for truth, honesty , liberty and pursuit of happiness !!

Just mail the renewal application, you just need to send the check to DMV (payable to 'DMV renewal' and write your license number on the check). Other documents are not required, i had talked to the DMV during my first renewal, they just get confused if we give unnecessary information. My wife and I have renewed our CA license twice by mail without any issues (yes twice, its my 13th year in the US..waiting for GC).
