It is easy for International License Holder. You can give your knowledge test first and immediately appear for driver test. If you pass the test they issue a driver license which will be mailed to your address. You will need to provide 2 proof of addresses.

The guy gave you the driving authority name and yet you claim you searched.

I don't know where u stay in MD but if u are near Baltimore don't got to Baltimore MVA.
Go to the one in ESSEX.My wife had too many issues at Baltimore MVA but essex people were very nice and had a seperate person dealing with licensing issues for visa people.

In some states (like NJ), you need a letter from Social Security Administration stating that you are not eligible for SSN.

Just ask yourself some questions & read some IMP information before apply for DL in USA.

1) You said you have International DL.

Do you know the driving…?
How confident are you in driving…?

Apologies for asking this question to you. Because one of my friend’s family had a bad experience with International DL. My friend wife brought International DL and went to DMV in Colorado and the Colorado state people issue the DL without having Road Test. They just took Paper Test. But she doesn’t know how to drive the car. And when she learn driving in Wal-Mart parking lot she met with the accident (Thank god no human effected in that accident. just $2000 for repairs)

2) Are you willing to spend at least 3 hours driving classes from Driving School…?
Better to spend some $$$ on Driving school, Even you are perfect in driving in your country.

3) Are you looking for MVA who do not offer Road Test on International DL…?

Do not consider the people advices like “Go there…MVA people kind of liberal in some Driving mistakes”. You know…DL is not a Green Card or some immigration benefit that you should get it immediately. You should at least 99.99% perfect in driving particularly in Highway in USA. Otherwise you and other people will be in big jeopardy while you drive the car.

Hope this gives you a better picture on DL in USA.

Essex,MD has the MVA office.

They don't need any letter from SSN administration.However they do check your visa status etc.So should be able to prove your legal status(passport.797 form etc),
i would suggest call them up or go to their office with all the documents.They will tell u if there is anything they need and if it is missing.
they are extremely courtious people and will tell u rightaway if there are problems with ur docs.
Offcourse my information may be outdate so call them up first to make sure info is correct.
