Yes you can get a DL from the DMV. Just shown them your work permit. With that work permit in your hand, who cares if your SSA card says not valid for work ?? Of curse, you can have to changed, but why bother now? Wait until you get your GC.

You interview should be held a month or two from now.

TO know anything about the immigration status, schedule a consultation with an immigration attorney. In many states, You can satisfy immigration status requirements by producing the EAD.

In a state like California, a green card applicant can get a DL with a work permit. I recommend that you find out whether Tennessee will issue a DL based on a work permit.
