AB 60 Driver License
AB 60 Program Information
Assembly Bill (AB) 60 (Chapter 524: Statutes of 2013) requires the department to issue an original driver license to an applicant who is unable to submit satisfactory proof of legal presence in the United States. Driver license applicants under AB 60 must meet all other qualifications for licensure and must provide satisfactory proof of identity and California residency.
For further assistance in providing the proper documentation, select AB 60 Checklist.
AB 60 also requires the department to develop regulations and consult with interested parties in an effort to assist the department in identifying documents that will be acceptable for the purposes of providing documentation to establish identity and residency.
Attention AB 60 Applicants: To schedule an appointment to visit a DMV field office to obtain a California driver license under AB 60, select Field Office Visit Appointment.
