DMV Weekly AB 60 Implementation Statistics Update
Sacramento – The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) today released preliminary statistics for Assembly Bill 60 (AB 60) during the eighth full week since implementation.
The following statistics are from Saturday, February 21, 2015 to Friday, February 27, 2015:
• Approximate number of AB 60 driver licenses issued last week: 19,000
Total issued since January 2, 2015: 129,000
NOTE: A license is not issued until the applicant proves identity and residency with qualifying documents or through secondary review, passes a written knowledge exam, and completes a behind-the-wheel drive exam.
• Approximate number of AB 60 applicants who visited a DMV office last week: 69,000
Approximate number who visited an office since January 2, 2015: 655,000
NOTE: This figure is not the number of unique applicants to the DMV, but rather the total number of visits. One individual applicant could make multiple visits to the DMV during their application process (e.g., starting an application, taking an exam, or completing other transactions).
• Approximate number of AB 60 driver license exams (written and behind-the-wheel) administered last week: 72,000
Approximate number of exams (written and behind-the-wheel) administered since January 2, 2015: 743,000
The DMV will continue to release these implementation statistics on a weekly basis. Next month, DMV will also release additional summary statistics for the month of February.
