FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 23, 2015
Final Saturday Hours to be Offered October 24
Temporary Program Helped Meet Increased Demand for AB 60 Driver Licenses
Sacramento – The final day for customers to take advantage of Saturday hours will be on October 24, 2015, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) no longer needs to keep its 60 designated field offices, including the four Driver License Processing Centers, open during weekends, now that applications for original driver licenses have returned to levels that were handled prior to the January 2, 2015, implementation of Assembly Bill 60 (AB 60).
The DMV began offering temporary Saturday hours on January 3, 2015 to help process the initial demand of original driver license applications from individuals who benefited from the Safe and Responsible Driver Act. It allows for undocumented individuals to apply for an original driver license with acceptable proof of identity and California residency.
As of October 9, 2015, the DMV has issued an estimated 525,000 driver licenses under AB 60. The DMV anticipates it will process approximately 1.4 million AB 60 related driver license applications during the program’s first three years.
The DMV continues to offer driver license related services at its four driver license processing centers in Granada Hills, Stanton, San Jose, and Lompoc. Customers can also schedule Monday – Friday appointments at any of its full service field offices by visiting www.dmv.ca.gov or calling 1-800-777-0133.
