Exclamation New DMV Factsheet from DHS regarding drivers' licences for nonimmigrants

http://www.ice.gov/doclib/sevis/pdf/dmv_factsheet.pdf.

This is primarily aimed at F, M or J nonimmigrants, however it is useful for all. In particular, this paragraph is interesting:

Does a nonimmigrant need an SSN to apply for a driver’s license or ID?

No. A nonimmigrant does not need an SSN; however, the nonimmigrant will need to apply for a social security number. Follow the instructions on how to apply for a social security card as described on the SSA Web site at http://www.ssa.gov/pubs/10096.html#3. If the nonimmigrant is ineligible for an SSN, he or she will receive a decision letter stating that ineligibility. The nonimmigrant must present this SSA letter when applying at the DMV office to fulfill the SSA requirement.

Since when did the Feds grab the privilege of issuing driving licenses?

Since their Real ID Act "influenced" the States?

Very like when they wanted the drinking age raise to 21. They can't tell the states to do that, but they can refuse them federal highway dollars unless they comply.
You know all this, why are you asking rhetorical questions?
