Thank you for your question.
Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
Are you currently online with me?
Until you formally obtain a license in hand, driving without one is still a violation.
the temporary license is only good once received, and if your current license expired, upon being pulled voer, an officer can still issue you a fine.
I agree that it is highly unlikely the officer would cite, but he can do so. This is why perhaps waiting is a good idea
Is that also true in colorado? I have a California Driver License but I drive in Colorado
That is true in all states. You must present a valid copy (not an expired one), or else you are deemed to drive without a license
Can I get any approval from the CA DMV electronically so I can drive before receiving the temporary?
What some may do is print out a temporary license that is good enough until the real one comes in the mail
perhaps such an option can be pursued with the California DMV
That would then be sufficient.
ok, i will try to contact them on monday
Is there anything else I can answer for you at this time?
