Good morning,

I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

Under the CA Vehicle Code, and DMV regulations, when a person with a valid foreign driver's license becomes a CA resident, they must apply for a CA driver's license.

All persons applying for a CA license must take the written driver's license test. People with an out of state license---such as from Texas---do not have to take a driving test. However, all persons with drivers licenses from a foreign country do have to take the behind-the-wheel driving test.

Here is a link to the CA DMV site which sets out the requirements for obtaining a CA driver's license. Please refer specifically to the section entitled "How to apply for a driver license if you are over 18 ": http://www.dmv.ca.gov/dl/dl_info.htm#two500

You may reply back to me again, using the Reply to Expert link, if you have additional questions.

I wish you the best in your future,

Doug
