The Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) is aware of current difficulties that some F and M students have when applying for a Social Security number (SSN) or driver’s license. SEVP and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) Program are working on a solution that they will implement on September 14, 2012.
ICE fact sheet provides information to designated School officials(DSOs) and responsible officers(ROs) in order to help F, M, or J nonimmigrant visa holders (including both primary and dependent status holders) obtain driver’s licenses or state identification cards.

I Just got license today... that too without birth certificate...
It happened like this...
I was trying for license in different DMVs... last week went to a DMV near to my house.. there they dont have facility for written test, vision test etc..
But they processed my application. The lady at the counter was nice enough and didnt mind my name problem in VISA.. she took photo and and signature.. then said, as i dont have a usa license, i've to take written test.. for that i need to go another DMV. And she issued a letter saying that..
Rules are strictly followed here. Only thing we need to wait for a long time.. This is what I did to correct my name everywhere
1. April 2005 - FNU - Passport, Visa
2. July 2005 - because of this SSN got delayed for 4 months and received with FNU
3. July 2005 - DMV refused to give license, because they cannot give license with FNU.
4. July 2005 - Enquired local newspapers in Philly - They told that I need to get court order number
Hai all... thought this might help someone trying to find some information for this FNU problem...First of all i had multiple problems....
