Public Workshop on AB 60 Regulations

On Tuesday, January 28, 2014, the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will conduct the first public workshop to assist in the development of regulations related to the implementation of AB 60, the state law that directs DMV to issue driver licenses to undocumented California residents.

The workshop is scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m. in the Auditorium of the Secretary of State Building located at 1500 11th Street, in Sacramento.

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.

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.

At the workshop, any interested person may present statements, arguments, or contentions (orally, in writing or both) that are relevant to the development of the regulations as required by AB 60. A full agenda will be provided prior to the workshop and will be available on the DMV’s web site.

Participation in the workshop will be in addition to, and not in substitution for, any participation in the formal rulemaking process.

A live webcast of the workshop will be available. For a direct link, please visit the DMV web page at http://apps.dmv.ca.gov/webcast/ during the workshop.

A second workshop will be held on Tuesday, February 13, 2014, in the Bell Community Center, 6250 Pine Avenue, Bell, CA. 90201.
