When I file a petition, will I be able to have a driver’s license?

Answer:  Filing a petition alone will not allow you to gain a Florida driver’s license at this time. Florida has sought to comply with the federal requirements of the Real ID Act, which requires proof of immigration status for state agencies to issue driver’s licenses. Florida maintains a list of acceptable immigration documents that is updated regularly to allow its license examiners to determine which applicants have the required immigration status. As of March 2018, a petition is not on that list.
