Thanks to Assembly Bill 60, also known as AB 60, on January 1, 2015, California residents who do not have proof of legal U.S. immigration status may now be eligible to apply for a California Driver’s License and buy auto insurance.
The new driver’s license will provide peace of mind to undocumented immigrants and their families. The new licenses:
• Provide proof that they are complying with driving laws.
• Cut down on abuse by making it harder for towns and cities to confiscate vehicles in the case of a routine traffic stop or an accident, so they can keep their car.
What applicants need to do:
• Make an appointment with the California Department of Motor Vehicles
• Pass written, vision and driving tests
• Provide a valid and current form of identification
• Provide proof of California residence (such as property titles, lease or rental agreements or utility bills)
In other states with similar new laws, like Nevada, the exam failure rate approached 90 per cent, leaving hopeful applicants high and dry. An obvious lack of preparation played a large part in Nevada’s poor results. That’s why Freeway Insurance, an active member of the Hispanic community, has stepped in to help California residents.
The Company has developed an ongoing series of study workshops to assist unlicensed California residents in preparing them to help pass the required tests to obtain their drivers’ licenses.
The workshops will be in Spanish and are FREE to everyone.
In addition, Freeway will help applicants:
- Prepare for exams
- Gather all the required documents
- Fill out all required forms
- Schedule their DMV appointment
