So my mom and my step dad married in 2010, and im currently 16 years old and i am still waiting for their interview so that i can get my green card, all i have now a is i-797c, and it has my a# on it, i wonder if i can go get my driver license with the i-797c adjustment of status recepit at California DMV? Because i really need to drive to go to school, my school is pretty far and my parents work at a different time so they cant drop me off. Thanks.
I agree with my colleague. You can check with your state's BMV.

Need actual EAD to get driver's licence.

You should have applied for work authorization along with the adjustemnt application. If you have not, you should do it now. It is form I-756. Once you receive it (in about 60 days) you take that and get a social security #. after you get your social security #, you can go to DMV and show both soc security and work authorization, and then you will be eligible for driver license. Of course, you if you get a green card before work authorization, this will be great, but you still need to follow the same process as stated above. You need to do this just in case your parents interview is delayed or not approved right away.
