DRIVER’S LICENSE

FOR UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS

August 31, 2015 by Lin Given

Ten U.S. states and the District of Columbia issue driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. These licenses are only valid if the immigrants are residents of the states or the district. If residence is in some other state, these licenses are not valid. States limit the length of time that permanent residents can stay there before obtaining a driver’s license, car registration, and license plate in that state. Each state has its own requirements for verifying the identity of immigrants without U.S. issued ID’s.

The states that issue driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants are: Washington, California, Utah, Nevada, New Mexico, Colorado, Illinois, Vermont, Connecticut, Maryland, the District of Columbia.

Delaware and Hawaii have passed similar legislation but have not yet began issuing licenses.
