This is how you make "have" sentences -- literally, it is something like "My-licence does-not-exist" = "I have no licence".

Elmam var = I have an apple.

For "I have my apple", I think it would have to be something like "Elmam bende" (my apple is at me).

So, how would you say "I do not have my driver's license"?

I'd say "Ehliyetim bende değil". (Well, I'd probably actually say "Sürücü belgem bende değil", but Duo teaches "ehliyet".)

"My licence is not at-me".
