A: The actual work card issued in connection with the I-797 approval notice for the I-765 is what you would want to bring for issuance of a driver license in Florida.

A: you will need the EAD card; not just the approval notice. Bring your social security card too.

A: Form I-765 is used to Apply for Employment Authorization

Required Documents at the DMV in Florida are:

• For Valid/expired Employment Authorization Document (EAD) with I-797 for I-765

indicating application prior to expiration of EAD or

• For customers applying for first-time EADs, an I-797 for I-765 indicating application

prior to expiration date of an I-94 or other USCIS-approved document must be

presented.

The length of DL/ID Issuance is One year from date of driver license or identification card issuance.

So, If you have your I-797 approving your I-765 which you applied prior to the expiration of your current EAD, you should be able to get a Florida Driver's License. Remember, you must show you filed your renewal before your EAD card expired. Be sure to take your EAD, SSC, FLDL, and a valid passport.

Good Luck,
