Requirements for NY Drivers License for DACA

Jamaica, NY |

I got approved for the deferred action and received my work permit and i also have received my Social Security. Can i go ahead and go to the permit exam and then take the road test for the drivers license here in NYC? Which forms do i need to fill out? i dont want to take a day off from work and not have everything before i go to DMV because they are always so crowded and i dont want to waste my day off

What papers can i use to get "points" because i believe you need to make 6 points. I do not have my passport right now because it was expired so i have submitted for renewal however i do have a photo copy of it and a receipt that they gave when i gave my passport

  1. You should call the NY DVM to get all the information required in order to get a drivers license. The DVM local phone numbers are 1-212-645-5550 or 1-718-966-6155.

  2. Read the instructions on NY gov website. You do not neet to take a day off for that. You will get the DL valid for the duration of EAD.
