Yes - you can complete a driving licence course.
Your UK provisional status will probably be ignored and you would have to start all over again from learners.
It will take time - over 120 hours if you are under 25yrs.
Check with your state Road Authority.

Learning to drive is not studying a tertiary subject........e.g. you do not need to go to uni or TAFE......

Good luck!
