1.4 Million Undocumented Immigrants Expected to Apply for Licenses in California

Undocumented immigrants in California are expected to apply for driver’s licenses in record numbers, NBC Los Angeles reported. Foreigners who are in the country illegally and reside there are benefiting from what is known as “AB 60,” a bill passed by the Legislature in 2013 that enables them to receive the documents in spite of their status.

The California Department of Motor Vehicles expects 1.4 million people to apply for a license in the first three years of the program and has expanded resources to tackle the demand. Prospective licensees must hold appointments at one of four newly created DMV offices. One of them, located in San Jose, will serve as a temporary processing center and has nearly 100 windows to handle expected rush.
