Driver's License in TX with DUI case pending in CA
I have a DUI case pending from an arrest in California 11 months ago, still no conviction. Currently, my license is clear with DMV but I do not have the physical license. Since the arrest, I have moved to Texas for work. I need to get my Texas Driver's License, but I have to give up my California license to receive my Texas one. How do I go about applying for my Texas license without having a California license to give?
Tell them you do not have it which is the truth. As long as your DL is still valid in California, Texas will issue a TDL.
