what is the most colloquial English version for this?

I said "he's gone to apply for his driver license", but it sounds a little bit chinglish.

He is gone for his driver license??  - The meaning is not clear enough.

He is out to fix up his driving license.

That is more like spoken english used in daily life.

Thanks.

But it should be "driver license", I saw it in my boss' american driver license.

But actually when I was asked that question,

I stumbled and finally managed to mutter - she ... went out to some government office to apply for his driver license.

My boss is a man.

Re: "他出去办驾驶证去了?"

"He's gone to apply for his driver license" = "He HAS gone to apply for his driver(or driving) license(or licence)" ( proper and correct English)

"He IS gone for his driver license" - (is RUBBISH English) because the correct way of saying it, is "He WENT for (or to get) his driver licence."
