These are important factors for the DHS.See question
I basically need the SSN to obtain a driver's license, as SSN is mandatory in the state of Michigan to get a driver's license.
To get an SSN, you need a work permit. Some H4s can get work permits, although the government is probably going to eliminate this regulation in the coming months or years. You do not need an SSN to get a driver's license. Review the Secretary of State webpage to see what documents you need that you can provide.See question
