Important Change in California Licensing Law

California Drivers Licensing Law

A new policy signed into California law on October 3rd will allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver�۪s licenses in the state. ��According to a recent study by the University of Southern California, 2.6 million people residing there, the majority of them latino, are without legal residency status. ��This marks a major change in policy as the state tries to push its immigration priorities ahead of federal policy that has so far been unable to address sweeping national legislation.

��

The new law, which goes into effect in 2015, will allow the large population in the state to operate motor vehicles legally and go to work, school, doctor�۪s appointments, to buy groceries or anywhere else they need to go without fear of losing their cars or possible deportation. ��They will be required to purchase automobile insurance which will help relieve the massive ���uninsured motorist�۝ issues in the state. ��1.4 million people are expected to apply for licenses over the course of the first 3 years.

California joins 9 other states to allow legal driving for undocumented immigrants.
