EAD has a spectacular aura about EAD has a spectacular aura about
Default Valid/Unexpired NY Drivers license but expired visa date on the license

Hey guys,

My friends and my family is planning to go for vacation to Puerto Rico. Thing is my friend is from NY and he has valid N.Y drivers license with the expiration date sometimes in 2018 but he has his H1B expiration date printed on the license in red that his H1B expired 08/2010. Though his old H1B has expired he has applied to renewal but hasn't got any approval yet just the receipt.

Wondering if someone has any problem in flying with this kind of license. Like if they have been stopped that your visa had expired and all.

Thanks,

Default Use some other ID

There is no need to show the driver's license for flying.
You could show your foreign passport. For that matter you could show EAD card.

The driver's license would be fine, but why even bother.

Default my personal experience with NY DL...

Two yrs back, I was in the same scenario...in that case I was just lazy to get my DL updated with my new H1B dates ...I have to fly to Denver for a work related matter...what I observed during my round trip was that the expired date (in RED) on DL did not matter to folks, whom I was really concerend about, like the secutiry officer who check your ID/Boarding pass in the airport security line. But when I was taking out my rental cal, the guy (rental car employee) at the airport exit took a note of this and I had some tough time explining him about these dates. He got convinced only after I asked to speak to his supervisor.

I was anyhow carrying my documents, just in case if I have to explain someone about the complex nature of legal immigration.

For those in this situation where DL is not expired but that date based on EAD/H1B has expired, can you tell what should be done? Should one go to DMV to update it and what is the process? Do you pay again etc? Please advise.....

Last time I went to DMV for my DL renewal, I asked this question to the agent at DMV. She said it will be better if we get the DL updated (changed, not renewed), based on updated expiration date of EAD/ H1B/ L1 etc. If you don't get DL updated, you must carry a copy of approval notice for H1b/ EAD/ L1 etc., but you can have a hard time explaining to the cop.
