No, E-Verify requires that List B documents be unexpired and contain a photograph. Because your employee presented an expired driver’s license along with a paper document that serves as a temporary license, you may complete Form I-9, but you must wait to create an E-Verify case until your employee presents his or her new unexpired driver’s license with a photograph. You must create an E-Verify case within three days from when the employee presents the actual driver’s license with a photograph for which the temporary license had been issued. If you are unable to create a case within three business days of hire, E-Verify will prompt you to enter the reason for the delay. When E-Verify asks for the reason why this case has not been submitted within three business days select: ‘Other’ and type “Awaiting actual document” in the field provided.
