New California driving law, AB 60: prove residency, pass tests, get license, drive

San Mateo Patch/Renee Schiavone, Staff, 12/30/14.  "DMV anticipates flood of driver licenses applications under AB 60. The new law goes into effect Jan.2."

Driving legal now
"Starting Friday, January 2, 2015, the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will begin issuing driver licenses under AB 60—the new law requiring DMV to issue a driver license to applicants who can prove identity and California residency, and meet all other licensing requirements, such as passing the driver license knowledge and behind-the-wheel driving exams.

Under the new law, motorists who cannot prove legal presence may obtain a license, but must prove identity and California residency—and pass the required vision test, driver license knowledge test, and the behind-the-wheel drive test—to obtain a driver license."  Read article.
