These are my experiences getting a driver license and renewing it in the US as a work visa holder.

Driver license

A long story for some other day.

Driver license renewal

Described below is my experience renewing my driver license after my H-1B renewal. Note that I had not yet gone to India to get a visa stamp in my passport.

My spouse though, who is a H4 dependent, could not renew her license. This is because, after a H-1B renewal the DMV requires either a visa stamp in the H4 holder's passport or a I-94 with the new renewed dates. The immigration folks at my workplace had applied for a I-539, but we had not yet received that updated I-94 for her.
