Do you have customers that have a Massachusetts X or A license number?
Typically, a person has up to one (1) year to drive in the United States on a valid foreign license as long as they are from one the following countries as listed in in Appendix A of the Massachusetts Driver’s Manual.
These countries were part of the 1949 Road Traffic Convention and the 1943 Inter-American Automotive Traffic Conventions.
My Client Will be in the US Longer than (1) Year
If your client is in the U.S. on a valid foreign license for more than 12 months, they may qualify for a Limited Term License. In order to do so, they must be from one of the countries listed in Appendix A and provide proof of lawful presence in the United States.
When issued, the Massachusetts credential will be valid for the individual's authorized length of stay in the U.S. This means that the expiration date for most non-U.S. citizens will not match their birth date but instead will expire on the same date as their authorized stay in the United States expires.
