Texas Changes Rules to Obtain Driver’s License

The state of Texas has announced that effective October 1, 2008, anyone who is not a U.S. Citizen or lawful permanent resident, will need to provide proof of their lawful status in order to receive an original, renewed, or duplicate driver’s license. Furthermore, a “Temporary Visitor” designation will be placed on licenses for those who are in the U.S. on non-immigrant visas, such as temporary employment-based visas. Those whose stay in the United States will be less than six months will not be eligible for a driver’s license.
