After AB60, Some Immigrants Have Hard Time Getting License

LONG BEACH, Calif. — The Department of Motor Vehicles is expected to process 1.4 million immigrants seeking licenses in the next three years as a result of AB 60, a new California law requiring the DMV to issue a driver’s license to applicants regardless of their immigration status.

The law is expected to bring a number of positive changes, from immigrants’ ability to get to school and work without fear of being stopped, to improving driver’s safety in general. But some say the road ahead isn’t as smooth as they thought it would be.
