DMV Holds Immigrant License Workshop


The California Department of Motor Vehicles held a public workshop in Sacramento on 1/28 on AB 60, the new state law that will allow undocumented residents to obtain driver’s licenses. The next meeting is scheduled for 2/13 in Los Angeles, and public feedback will be incorporated into the DMV’s draft proposal before an official rollout on January 1, 2015. The new regulations will let immigrants who are not federally recognized as citizens ​— ​but who pass written and road tests and meet other requirements ​— ​submit alternative forms of ID and proofs of residency to get their licenses.
