DMV Issues 57,000 "AB 60" Driver Licenses In First Month
It’s now been a month since California’s new law took effect that allows undocumented immigrants to obtain driver licenses. The Department of Motor Vehicles says issued nearly 60,000 such licenses in that first month.
57,000 undocumented Californians obtained driver licenses from January 2nd through the 30th. That means each applicant provided proof of identity and residency, and passed both the DMV’s written rules-of-the-road test and its behind-the-wheel exam.
The data also shows the DMV administered 415,000 of those tests to undocumented Californians in January – meaning applicants failed far more tests than they passed.
