You should be able to renew with the EAD (work authorization card) and Social Security card and as one of my colleagues suggested, proof of FL residence. If your EAD is set to expire, you can renew with a pending Cancellation of Removal application. Even if you had the Individual hearing but have to wait for the final decision, you should be able to renew the EAD if it will expire in the interim. Assuming you had an attorney representing you in removal proceedings, you might want to consult with that attorney as to what you might need, especially since he/she should be most familiar with the specifics of your case.

In order to get a DL in the State of Florida you must show that you are in the United States Legally. A valid EAD card and SS Card with government issued photos id should be sufficient. You will also need proof of your residence - lease, utiltity bill..... mail received at your address with your name on it. I suggest you also bring with you the most recent notice of hearing from the court.
