California DMV's latest statistics reveal that 442,000 AB 60 driver licenses have been issued from January 2, 2015 to July 31, 2015.

45,000 AB 60 driver licenses were issued in July 2015.

The total (non-commercial) driver licenses issued in July 2015 was 123,000, including the 45,000 AB60 licenses.

In a Year to Year Comparison, the DMV notes that the Total original (non-commercial) driver licenses issued in July 2014 was 81,000. "This number shows how many original driver licenses DMV issued in July 2014, before AB 60," their website notes.

In March, the agency issued a notice stating that they are loosening some of the requirements and will now accept more foreign documents as proof of identity. DMV Director Jean Shiomoto said "These proposed regulatory changes are designed to further advance the application process."

"Until these proposed changes become finalized by the Office of Administrative Law - which is expected to occur in June 2015 - the current application process stays the same, and all driver license applicants will continue to apply under the existing requirements.
DMV currently processes AB 60 applicants according to emergency regulations that went into effect on January 1, 2015. Under state law, the Department must complete the rule making process, and provide the opportunity for public comment on the proposed changes. Some of the key proposed improvements include:
- Accepting California residency documents that are issued by any government within the U.S., not just the federal government;
- Adding consular cards from Colombia and Ecuador, identification cards from Ecuador, and passports from Tonga, Sri Lanka, and Republic of Korea to the list of acceptable foreign documents for proving identity;
- Clarifying that the California residency documents must match the address listed on the driver license application.
The DMV also proposes to eliminate the option of presenting birth certificates in conjunction with various other documents to prove identity without going to secondary review. This change is proposed to reduce need for document translation, simplify the application process and reduce delays. Applicants will continue to be able to use foreign birth certificates to prove identity during the secondary review process.

The DMV issues weekly updates on the progress of AB 60 here. Their latest press release is here.

The state notes that "The DMV has a helpful AB 60 information webpage,, containing a complete list of acceptable documents that can be used to verify identity and residency, a copy of the driver handbook, sample knowledge tests, appointment information, and other relevant materials."
