Based on the information in the page, Can anyone please confirm whether you can use a valid foreign license with a New York Learner's Permit to drive in the Newyork State ? Will these documents be sufficient Incase I get pulled over ?

The answer in page points to that a foreign license allows me to drive the vehicle. Foreign (or out-of-state) licenses are not valid once a person becomes a resident of New York State. Does this invalidate my eligibility if I am a resident of the new york state ?

  • The first word in the answer on the page you linked to is "yes." Why don't you trust that? What additional information do you hope to get by asking here?

  • Thanks for your question phoog, I have updated the question with more information. The gist of my question is to understand whether my foreign license is not valid anymore If I become a resident of the newyork state.

  • State law does not affect the validity of a foreign license outside the state; however, surrendering the license might.
