Documents Needed for Noncitizens

Non-US citizens may apply for driver’s licenses in Washington, so long as they can provide the necessary documentation. Given that, if you are not a US citizen, you will not have a US Passport or a US Birth Certificate, you will have to submit acceptable documents such as:

  • Foreign passports (I-94, I94W and temporary I-551 stamps).
  • Valid, verifiable foreign driver’s licenses.
  • Valid US visas.
  • Permanent Resident Cards.

In addition, to prove your WA residency, you can provide:

  • Lease/mortgage agreements.
  • Utility bills.
  • Bank statements.
  • Letters from the IRS.
  • Insurance paperwork.
  • School documents.
  • Medical documents.

After the Written Test

Once you have aced the written drivers test, you will immediately be issued your WA learner’s permit, which you will have to hold for a period of six months. If you don’t pass, however, you may have to endure a waiting period before you can retake the test. The same rule applies to the DMV road skills test in Washington. Thus, DMV.com recommends that you set aside ample time for studying for both exams before you set up a testing appointment with the Washington Department of Licensing.

Also, be sure to obtain corrective lenses (if necessary) before you take the road test. All test takers must have a visual acuity of 20/40 in at least one eye in order to pass the state-required eye screening.

To get a Washington driver’s license, you will either have to complete 30 hours of classroom instruction in a driver training program (if you are younger than 15-and-a-half years of age), or you will need to complete 50 hours of supervised driving with a parent (if you are 15-and-a-half years of age or older).
