Hi,

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

Unfortunately, if your temporary visitor status has expired, it is not legal for you to drive in the United States. The state will not renew your driver's license until you are able to provide proof of legal residency. That means that the first step is to contact Immigration to find out what they need you to do, or if they're willing or able to extend your stay. Once you get your immigration status resolved, you will be able to go to the DMV and get a new license.

In the meantime, do not drive, because if you're caught driving with an invalid license, it can make things more complicated.

Good luck.

what do you mean more

 

Expert:  Lucy, Esq. replied 4 years ago.
Well, driving without a license is a crime. You'll be prosecuted, which means that you could be facing a couple of days in jail, plus fines. Then, they'll suspend your right to renew your license - usually for at least a few months. So, it's important to follow all the steps to get your immigration status renewed or extended, and then get a new license, before you start driving again.
