After 9/11 I thought most states had tightened up security for issuing driving licenses. Don't most states require a SS number, proof of residency of that state etc...now? Looks like Georgia does...

Doesn't the OP state that he is already in an overstay situation and has been advised by counsel not to leave the country until his situation is resolved by marriage and the subsequent adjustment?

Non-lawfully present individuals must prove their full
legal name, identity, date of birth and document their
ITIN issued by the Internal Revenue Service.

how would you get an ITIN?

Not having a UK license, means you'll have to check the are requirements of the state. Some states waive a lot of the rubbish for those over 21 to get a learners permit and requirements for x number of hours of holding a learners permit before being able to take the test.

If that stuff isn't waived, then you've got all that guff that a spotty 15 year old has to go through. No shorts cuts for a provisional UK license.

My kids had these until they had green cards and I seem to remember having to provide documentation of their status.

They did - they wouldn't accept my 1 year extension in one GA DMV office because my GC was expired. Luckily they did in another office.

No, you need only to file a US federal tax return. I do believe it has been changed that an ITIN is only obtainable with the filing of a return.

As I am significantly over 21 I was able to avoid most of the additional tests and videos for the learners permit.

I did the road signs and highway code tests on the computer at the DMV but I had all the proof I needed for a lawful immigration status so I could get my learners permit that day.

GA isn't known for being a particularly progressive state so I wouldn't be surprised if getting a permit or full license is harder than in Colorado

I was also over 21, so just had to do the basic multiple choice test and the road test. I did have to sign a form saying I had had 40 hours of instruction though.

It depends what state you are living in. Like with most things...different states have different rules/laws.
