View Full Version : SSN printouts valid at DMV?

For those planning on using their SSN printouts instead of waiting for the card to arrive in the mail, are the printouts valid at the DMV?

I understand it might be different from state to state. So if you have used a printout to obtain an ID/DL, do share your experience and from what state you are from.

I just got back from the DMV but I had already obtained my SSN card. I am from California and the clerk that attended me didn't need my SSN card just my EAD. You do have to have a SSN established for you because you have to write it down in your ID/DL application.

for me, I was able to take the drive test the day after I passed the written test. I think only if you are under 18 they want you to practice your driving skills until you are ready to do the drive test. The instructor said to me "You got your permit yesterday, did you get enough practice behind the wheel?" i just smiled and said yes I have been practicing. lol (Been driving since 16 yrs old. 24 now)

They don't take the printout that says you applied for a SSN (I tried that 2 weeks earlier and got turned away). But once your number has been generated you can get a printout and they can use that. So with the SSN printout and the EAD I got the permit. And no, I've never had a license before.

Well, the thing is I could have done the license right then and there. But I chose not to because my family wants me to do some driving lessons first. So I got the permit. The only thing is that they initially issue you a non-picture paper permit until the actual card comes in the mail, and they don't allow you to take the driving test until you get the card. That could take up to a month (they say they need to verify your documents with DHS). I hope it comes sooner though. So if you want you could go straight for the DL but that's the same process and you still have to wait for them to send you the physical card.

Those of you who got your license in NJ, what documents did you use? Especially those of you who aren't in school right now. Because I tried doing the 6 point ID for a family member and without a school ID they don't get the 6 points.

Nevada accepts the EAD as Proof of Identity. I went today to take the Drivers Permit. (I do not have a social yet, I will get apply for one on Monday).

You can get: ID and Drivers Permit with just the EAD and something that proves your residence (Address).

When the Drivers Permit arrives in the mail (actual card), you can schedule an appointment online for a Drivers Test. By the time you are ready to take the Drivers Test, you must have the Social Security Card.

I immediately told the person that was helping me that I received a SSN print out this morning along with a letter saying I'm going to get my card within 2 weeks (receipt letter).
She told me no transaction can be process without a Social Security Card if it's the first time getting an ID, Learner Permit, or Driver License.

When you apply for an ID and or a DL they verify with USCIS AND SSA when you give them your application.

ID:
They do not give you a temp ID, just a piece of paper as a receipt for your ID, the day you apply. It takes 2 weeks to get your ID in the mail.
Cost: $26.00

DL: You will need to take the 36 question test the day that you apply. They take your picture, then the test. If you pass, they give you the permit right then and there. You will have to take the Behind the Wheel test. If you pass you get a temporary drivers license. It takes 2 weeks for the DL to arrive in the mail.
Cost $31.00

I just applied for my original SSN today(Technically yesterday, after seeing the time) at a Social Security Administration office right after getting my EAD in the mail. How do you know when your number has been generated? I only got a receipt telling me that I should have my card in about 2 weeks or less. I REALLY want to get my ID and DL as soon as possible hehe, and the original post says that Texas takes printouts.

Cool, thanks. I just wasn't sure if they verify your information right at the moment, or your it takes time for them to verify. (Just like the SSA). I actually went back to the SSO, and they told me DMV just checks with them and not DHS. Hopefully, we all get it soon (and not wait the 60 days), and finally have a proper way to identify ourselves.

I went on North Carolina's DMV website on their requirements and I copy and pasted what it said for proof of SSN.
Proof of Social Security
One of these documents is needed to establish proof of Social Security:

Social Security Card (no metal cards)
1099 Form
W-2 Form
DD-214 Form
Property tax Record
Payroll Record/Pay Stub
Social Security Document reflecting the Social Security Number
Military ID Card/Military Dependents Card
Medicaid/Medicare Card reflecting the Social Security Number

So, that being said, "Social Security Document reflecting the Social Security Number" would count as the print out showing the number right?

it usually takes less than 48 hrs so walk in on Monday and say something like "I didn't get a reference # and I'm just wondering if I can have one so I can keep track of the status of my app and know when I have a social # assigned to me" The rep will most likely give you a print out with your # in it.

North Carolina has made the decision to grant licenses to DACA. However, the License will be different from US Citizens license with a different color and design with big bold letters stating "NO LAWFUL STATUS", with deferred action written in the background for a two-year period. This makes DACA people an easy target to discriminiate them and not respect their privacy. Although unfortunate, it's better than nothing.

wow hope other states do not follow these actions. But at least is something is better than nothing. Are these DL valid for identification? Some states are issuing "temporary" DL that are not valid for identification.

I do not think so, you would need the number.

How about this? I'm 17 and a half, just under 18. This means that I don't need to provide proof of signature and proof of residency for a MA permit. The official requirement on the form says that I will need to provide proof of date of birth and social security number, does this mean I can just use a print out or will I still have to use the physical card itself? If anyone went through the same thing please reply, thanks.

When I go apply for a social security number, do I a make an appointment or do I walk in? Also, since my birth certificate is in Spanish, do we need it translated? Lastly, since I have two last names do I put both of my two last names on the same area where last name is written to be show on card?

You would just walk-in, the application process takes no more that 5 mins, so all that remains is the waiting. If your SSA is mostly busy, I would recommend going a little early. And yes, you will need to translate your birth certificate. If you have a non-expired passport, use that instead of waiting for your BC gets translated.

Sorry but I'm almost 100% sure that you will need something stronger than a college ID. The point is to prove your identity and such so I can't be sure. I guess I would try calling them and asking.

When I walked in I just handed him my EAD card, my DACA approval letter and my mexican birth certificate, I didn't need to have it translated. I had a current passport with me but they didn't ask for it. He also filled out the application on the computer just verified some info as he was typing it in. If you are not sure I would suggest calling the office before you get there and wait to then be sent back home for more things.

Yeah, I called today and they told me that I can bring my certificate and they already have translators to translate the Certificate. I also told them that my college ID is my only form of identification, and they said that I could also bring in my college ID.

Cool. Yeah just bring whatever you can think of that can help, because while I was there they kept sending people away because they would ask for things and people forgot them at home.
