New MD Driver's License Application Process for Non-US Residents

Posted: Updated:

MARYLAND - Starting November 4, non-US residents can schedule an appointment to apply for a Maryland Driver's License or ID card.  This applies to any person with foreign documentation, but doesn't have valid U-S Citizenship or Immigration documents.

Applicants will need a certification letter from the Maryland Comptroller's Office with a unique number before they can schedule an appointment.

Advocates say not only will this give them the opportunity to carry out their daily activities, but it will also calm legal worries.

"This is going to be a great sense of relief to be able to be identified.  It will give that person the opportunity to identify 'yes' I do have a document that allows me to drive in the United States.  You're able to identify me, and also I think it's important to authorities...to be able to identify the person that's in front of them," says Jacqueline Lisjuan, president of Salisbury based Hispanic outreach center, Rayo De Luz.

While people can schedule an appointment for a license November 4, 2013, those appointments won't begin until January 2, 2014.
