How Does an Immigrant Get a Driver License?

Posted: April 5th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Sarasota Immigrants | Tags: , , , , , , | 1 Comment »

Many foreigners have a difficult time getting a driver’s license here in the United States.  Unlike other countries, the US does not have a robust system of public transportation, one needs a car to get around.  I am attaching a link here that tells foreigners what documents they need to use the GatherGoGet website.

GatherGoGet is Florida’s DMV site: http://www.gathergoget.com/

Many people ask us if they need a social security number.  The answer is no.  Unless a foreigner has work-authorized status in the United States they will not have a social security number and the DMV does not require it.  If a person has already been issued one, then they do need it.

We hope this helps.  Please post any questions or concerns in the comments section below.  They will be answered promptly.
