Default Drivers Licence issue in Pennsylvania

Hi Guys,

I am on H1B and my wife is working using her EAD. Like most people on here we applied in the July 2007 rush.

Now her licence in PA was expiring and we went to renew it and provided ALL necessary documents such as Passport, I-94, current and future EADs. However at the very end after about half an hour of providing documents, the DMV guy said that the system needed "more info" and that he would have to fax everything to Harrisburg who would then contact the INS for the missing info and we would get some "letter" from the DMV.

Has anyone faced a similar issue in PA before? If so how soon after did they receive this letter? Is there anything I can do to expedite the process such as contacting my local Sentator/Congressman's office? We have a small baby and my wife needs to drive to go to work.

Thanks.

Do you know what more 'info' is? Did you ask that guy what info he needs? I renewed my PA license for 3 times. I had no problem. Just show whatever documents listed on website for people on visa or EAD.

Default Same in Oregon

Hi

The same happened to me in Oregon. Though they have all immigration information about me the person is not able to see/understand and asked me to come after 10days.

Normally they take 5-6 days if they are really expecting some info.

Try calling after few days and check with different officer. Not all of the DMV staff are trained to understand all aspects of immigration.

Thanks

Default Show them the original 485 receipts

I had my PA DL renewed last year. All they asked was the original I-485 receipt, Passport. They dont consider EADs.

We gave them the 485 receipt and both the EADs and this is all information he actually asked for and said at the end that the system did not let him give us the DL as it needed more info.

When will this NIGHTMARE end!

PA DMV requires atleast one document which has a later expiry to issue license, Take a letter from her employer stating she will be working in PA until a later date (Say 12/31/2011 eg). Show it to them and they will issue license.

Which area of PA are you in? If you're in Southeastern PA near Philly, try the Malvern DMV. They accept I-485 receipts.

I agree with what gcganapati said. Some of folks in these centre's have no idea about these docments. I had mine renewed twice before. First time, I did renew online and they sent a receipt that I took to the DMV center, no problem at all.

Second time, as we want to change the address, they started asking all the documents like 485 receipt notice, EAD, proof of address. It took half hour for them to check in their system (God knows what they are checking) and issued the license.

If its very urgent, try other DMV center's or pay the fee online and take the receipt and get the license renewed at the DMV center.

I recently transferred my license week back. I just showed my EAD. He cheked online and gave license based on that. At the end he took 485 photo copy.

This is at Dublin DMV.

I think the expiry date is based on EAD, not based on I-485 receipt notice.
