In case you missed it, California has issued over half a million driver licenses to illegal aliens in the first year of their program, launched with the passage of AB 60.

Governor Moonbeam signed AB60 into law in October 2013, after years of legislative squabbling over the issue. The reconquistas didn't back down and finally got their wish.

The state had to hire 1,000 new employees and opened four new Driver License Processing Centers (DLPCs) in Stanton, Lompoc, Granada Hills, and San Jose to handle the deluge.

The program's homepage states "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."

The DMV, which reports monthly on the numbers of new AB60 licenses granted, issued a press release which stated:

AB 60: 605,000 Driver Licenses Issued In First Year

Sacramento – The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) reports it has issued 605,000 driver licenses under Assembly Bill 60 (AB 60) since it was implemented on January 2, 2015.

"DMV committed to successfully implementing this new law to increase safety on California’s roads by putting licensed drivers behind the steering wheel," said DMV Director Jean Shiomoto. "One year after AB 60 implementation there are 605,000 more drivers on the road who have passed all testing requirements and demonstrated their knowledge of California’s rules of the road."

Under AB 60, the DMV can issue an original driver license to an applicant who lacks proof of legal presence in the United States and meets all other requirements to obtain a driver license, including proof of identity and California residency and meeting all other licensing requirements including written and drive tests.

During the program’s first year, the DMV has administered 2,091,000 knowledge and drive test examinations. As of December 31, 2015, approximately 830,000 AB 60 applicants have applied for a driver license. vvv

On average, DMV issued approximately 50,000 new driver licenses per month under AB 60 during the first year of implementing the new law.

Month AB 60
January 59,000
February 72,000
March 76,000
April 74,000
May 60,000
June 56,000
July 45,000
August 37,000
September 34,000
October 35,000
November 26,000
December 31,000

Total 605,000 (all numbers are rounded)

AB 60 was signed into law in October 2013 and gave the DMV one year to get ready to implement one of the biggest programs in the department’s history.

Steps DMV took to successfully implement the new program included:

The California DMV has engaged in more than 200 public outreach events across the state.

Applicants are reminded about the importance of studying for the driver license knowledge exam, as well as practicing for their drive test. The department also reminds new drivers about obeying the rules of the road. For specific program information, visit the department's AB 60 webpage.
