How can I extend my driver’s license with a pending I-829?

My I-829 is pending and I got my receipt letter that I was able to use to extend my driver’s license for 18 months, but now that is also expiring. Is there anything I can do to get an extension on my driver’s license? Should I get an I-551 stamp first?

If the DMV requires proof of status in the U.S. prior to renewing your license, then, yes, you should obtain an I-551 stamp.

Your I-829 receipt should suffice for the renewal of your driver''s license in most states. Consult your attorney for further assistance.

You will need to get an I-551 ADIT stamp.

If you have not received one by now, you should request another extension letter. Call the 800 number on your receipt.

Yes. Get your I-551 stamp first and then you should be able to extend your driver''s license. If you have difficulty with the department of motor vehicles accepting your extension stamp, ask to speak to a supervisor or try a different office.

It depends on your state. Every state has their own rules. In Florida, each immigration document generally can be used only once. In Florida, even an expired green card may be used if the identity of the applicant can be verified through their system.

There are local rules about those things.
