Ignore the above comment.
To apply as a lawful US Permanant Resident, all you need is your SSN and GC. You do not need a drivers license.

dude, show me the reference where it clearly said that in order to participate in match you MUST have GC, SSN and/or DL. don't make any BS comments if you're not aware what you're saying

so, you're saying that tons of guys around the world how were in the us once in their life only for cs, who matched and who never had all of the "things" mentioned above - is just someone's imagination or what?
what i'm saying is not about pros and cons of someone's resume but to be eligible to participate in match an applicant MUSTN'T have neither GC, nor SSN, nor DL. point

No, you do not. As I previously mentioned, You only need the SSN and GC to apply as a lawful permanent resident of the US.

Clearly, you missed what the OP was trying to ask. Let me clarify further. An ERAS applicant can apply as a USC, conditional-GC holder, permanant-GC holder, visa-requiring and so on. I tried to answer the question more specifically for the OP, where in his case, he will only need his GC and SSN (last 4 digits I believe) to apply as a GC holder. Now - relax.

Its essentially the same thing. You don't need to worry about it, and you can apply to the GC and USC only programs without any worries. Good luck.
