  • Acquiring a drivers license

    Please help... I applied for 245i, been here since 2 years old. I don't have enough points to apply for a drivers license. My parents were not able to fix our papers before. What to do? Thanks.

        What state do you currently reside in?

        I am not a lawyer nor do I claim to be one so please double-check any information given by me, or anyone else for that matter, with a certified (immigration)lawyer before you take any further steps.

              I think the state you are thinknig of is Oregon, not Washington. But if you applied under 245i then you should have a work permit by now, and that is all you need in NJ. WHat do you mean you don't have enough"points" yet.

                Hi!

                I am 26 and illegally here.
                If you have TIN Tas ID # you can go too florida and get a license . They don't require social security #'s .

                Doesn't life as an immigrant suck in the states.
                I am so frustrated with it.

                  Vegasguy--And just why would you think life as an illegal alien here would or should be so good? So easy?

                  The only complaints I've heard from legal immigrants are related to the inefficiencies of the immigration system, which occur largely because it has to use resources to deal with illegal aliens, or "legalizing" illegals.

                    I dont think thats correct anymore, VEgasguy...about the drivers license in Florida..They now require proof of legal status along with the tax or ss#. how long ago did you get your license? this happened after 9/11.

                      In response to Katycab: That's what's also bugging us, we haven't heard from INS. Not a peep. As for the points, it's the requirements such as SSS#, Credit Card, School records, as if you are applying for a US Passport. As many DMV's have their own policy, ours require them.

                        You applied in 2001 and haven't heard *anything*? I think you need to chack the status. Too many people tell me they have been waiting years and when I check the status it turns out they missed their interview years ago.

                          Could you please what are the steps to do? My attorney is not too helpful. I've asked him about it but said we just have to wait. Please point me the right direction. Thanks Katycab..

                            All 51 States needs the following documents before the issuance of Drive license, States ID.

                            1. if you are US Citizen:
                            (a) Certified copy of your birth certificate.
                            (b) Your SSN Card(original).
                            (c) Photo Id./Passport valid or expired.

                            2. If you are an Alien:
                            (a)Your Passport.
                            (b)SSN Card(original)
                            (c)Alien Residence Card(Green Card)
                            (d)You will have to proof that you are legaly in the US.

                              First I just want to address Adam's statement- in case anybody actually believes that he is correct. There are only 50 states, although there are some other territoires (PR, Somoa, VI, etc). All of them have *different* requirements. I think that has been discussed extensively.

                              Aside from the fact that for USC there generally is not a need for a photo ID in order to get a state ID, requirements vary widely between states as to need to show legal presence. Not one demands a green card as the only acceptable status.

                              To answer Ivan in particular- If you have a lawyer working on it than he probably has received at least the 1st NOA- that has the reference numnber on it. With that code you can check status online. You said that you had received *nothing*, but your lawyer, infact, probably has received some notices. If you never received the 1st NOA you could call the National Customer Service Center and request a referral.
