JC2,

A foreign license is typically good for other countries. Sometimes it needs an International Endorsement.

My statement was for a foreigner that does not have a license and wants to obtain one here in the U.S. If SS card is a requirement, what would be the requirement for a person how is not from the U.S. and obtaining a license for the first time.

I'm off to the research pages.

Edited:
Ah! resarching the web is so easy - sometimes.

Taken from TXDPS

"Individuals who have applied for and been denied or who have never applied for, been issued or assigned a SSN may complete a Social Security Affidavit. The affidavit will be available at the driver license office and must be sworn to before an authorized Department employee. Providing a false statement to the Department in connection with this affidavit will result in cancellation of the driver license and may result in criminal charges. The affidavit is not acceptable for the issuance of a CDL, as all applicants for a CDL must have an SSN."

This should not be a surprise to anyone, unless they had their barried in the sand. The "Real ID Act" has been coming for several years. It's not aimed at "Fulltimers" it's just they get caught-up in the address scramble.

I have sent an email to the TDPS asking how "The Escapees" address would fit into an RV'er obtaining a drivers license.

We'll see. I'll post any reply here.

A passport is usually considered proof for a non-citizen. State rules vary, though.

Why would a foreigner need a US driver's license? States typically allow driver's from foreign countries to drive on their foreign license within the state for a limited period (CO is 90 days). The law in CO is that if anyone is here for more than 90 days, they're not just visiting, they're resident and are therefore required to obtain a CO license within 30 days of becoming a resident. If resident, then they need to show proof of legal presence in the US. Anyone who stays longer than 90 days in the US (legally) will have some proof of legal presence (i.e. visa). Again this is CO law, the "haven" states will be much more relaxed about who they give licenses to.

And if they did not have a license, just turned licensing age, or any other multitude of reasons. Maybe they ride bicycles in there home country and never needed a drivers license. Now they are visiting and understand the vast beauty of our country and decide to roam around for awhile and would like to do it by automobile or other means of self driven propulsion. Gain the experience or take a driving school course then apply for a driver's license.

Not everything is cut and dry, black and white, is it?

Did you read the entire thread, and particularly my post prior to the one that was quoted? I address that foreign country licenses are accepted in other countries. Just curious.

There are international driver license reciprocity agreements that cover many countries and the U.S.

That may be illegal unless they will accept any form of ID, not just the marriage certificate. One legal form of name chage change is a Common Law name change, which is legal anywhere in the U.S. as long it isn't used for fraudulent purposes. To get a Common Law name change, all one has to do is start using the new name exclusively; no court orders, etc. needed. The big problem with them is trying to convince people they are legal. My daughter did one and had all sorts of fun convincing people, such as the phone company (the most troublesome of the bunch), etc. Fortunately, she kept her old State ID (she never learned to drive) so she cross referenced it with her new one (both had the same number). All she needed to get the State ID changed was to present two forms of ID showing she was using the new name; she used two store discount cards that were easy to get.

It's called the "International Driving Permit," and is good for about 150 countries and is in 10 languages.

One can obtain one through AAA or other sources, for a fee of course.
