Could someone pls help me on this..my situation is slightly different.
We r out of state and my hubby is planning to join a company in trenton,NJ using EAD and we are planning to live in Philadelphia,PA.
EAD expires in Sept 08.
Some of u r suggesting to get a letter from employer stating that work place is in PA to get the license. What do u do when the work place is NJ and residence is PA??
Also we r planning to buy a new car...is it better to buy it in the current state we live in and register it in PA or come to PA and buy it there??
Pls advise asap.
Thank you.

You have to register your car where you live, namely PA. That's not optional. You can buy it anywhere. You will also need a PA driving license.

Default Renew Online?

Can I renew my DL without going to DMV using my recently approved I-797? They have sent me a letter stating i need to personally appear with my H-1B, but i am not sure if they entertain online renewal?

This is PA - Philadelphia DMV.

You can not renew online. If you still try to renew it online, you will get a message on the browser asking you to go to nearest DMV..

I have lived in PA for about 9 years now. I did renew my license online and I did'nt have a problem. When I went to receive my photo id card, all they ask is your old license and confirmation of social security. It could be that I got my new license before 2000 and they didnt have any issue regarding visa then. It all started after 911. I know I might have a problem if I move out of state.

I know this is not related to immigration but needed to ask someone abt it!
I just read on the Penndot website that if u bring a car from out of state and want to register it in PA..u need to do it within 20 days! And one should have a valid PA driver's license for it!
Getting a valid driver's license requires 2 proofs of residency to be shown..one can be the apartment lease agreement...second one should be utility bill...which will come only end of the month i.e after 30 days!
What do ppl do in this case? Any suggestions?

It doesn't need to be an utility bill. It can be any letter (or Fedex envelop)addressed to you. Credit card change of address notification receipt will work too.
I moved to PA from VA and didn't change my car registration and DL for nearly six months due to hectic travel schedule. When I finally went to change the registration no one asked me any questions.

Why do you think it takes 1-2 months? I got mine the same day. There is a document in the pa dmv website that tells you what documents you need to take with you to present to the DMV officer. If you have all the documents they will give you your license the same day. At least that was my experience.

If you are merely transferring your license from another state, it won't take 1-2 months, you'll get it the same day. Perhaps they were thinking that you are starting from scratch with the learner's permit and everything.

Thanks.

The reason it will take atleast a month is that we should give them 2 proofs of residency which in my case is lease agreement and utility bill. We will have the lease agreement but the utility bill will come only after one month.

Ya..the actual license will come in a day but to apply for it we will need a month's time for reasons mentioned above.
