    Answered . If you have moved to California for work purposes, you need to obtain a license within 10 days. You need to review California Vehicle Section 12500 and 12505 to see if you qualify for an exemption. Law enforcement in Santa Clara County is pretty aggressive about citing H1B visa holders that have not received their CA license within the proscribed period.
