Last year I moved from NewYork to LosAngeles Area, CA
I485 approved: Sep 30 2004
Got my Green card to my CA address in Oct 2004
I Applied for CA Drivers license on Nov 24,2004. DMV personnel punched on expiration date on my NY license and gave me a temporary license.
So far I've not yet recieved my license Id card. its more than 8months I'm on Temporary license. When ever I called DMV they say they've not yet recieved any proof confirmation from Department of Homeland Security.
Since its more than 180 days they advise me to followup the Main office @ sacramento. Per request of DMV personnel @ Sacramento I've faxed the Copies front and Back side of my GreenCard same on May 14th and followed after 3 weeks. But its still in verification. Last week when I called they advised me to fax the copy with image in large size which I did.
Its real frustating for me. I did appy for update on my Social Security Card. SSA was able to verify my status within 2 weeks and I got the replacement Card within 3 week. But I dont know why its taking so long for DMV of CA to verify status with INS.
Can any one let me know if they had similar experiences
