Updating address for drivers license
Thus, when applying for the driver’s license in a local DMV office, I brought my international passport with I-94 form, I-20 form from the university and other verifying documents, which stated that I was eligible to stay in the USA for 2 years.So, since I obtained the driver’s license almost a year after my arrival in the United States, it was issued for a year – until the date when my visa would expire.As you might expect, I got rather anxious about my DMV drivers license renewal.California DMV provides 4 methods of driver’s license renewal: This is the fastest and easiest way, but online renewal is available only for those drivers who are registered as a certified user with CA DMV.
I paid a renewal fee, had my photo taken and my thumb print scanned, as well as my vision screened (yes, once again, just the same as when I had obtained the driver’s license).
I am sure that I wouldn’t remember about DMV license renewal until some cops stopped me and checked the DL, but fortunately, I got a renewal notice sent by CA DMV.
It said that I needed to renew the driver license in DMV within 2 months; otherwise my DL would expire and I wouldn’t be eligible to drive a vehicle on California public roads anymore.
You will be able to use this option if you receive a Renewal By Mail Notice with a Renewal Identification Number, you don’t need updating the drivers license because of changing your address or other personal information (or no fresh photo is needed) and you have your SSN and credit card verified.
As far as I know, DPS drivers license renewal in Texas and New York also provides for online option, so I believe it is available in many states if certain conditions are met.
