Assembly Bill (AB) 60 requires DMV to issue an original driver license to an applicant who is unable to submit satisfactory proof that his or her presence in the United States is authorized under federal law. Driver license applicants under AB 60 must meet all other qualifications for licensure and must provide satisfactory proof of identity and California residency.
So, how can an applicant prepare oneself?
On the day the applicant applies for a driver license, he or she will need to take a knowledge test. Following are ways to help prepare for the knowledge test:
- Study the California Driver Handbook, which is available in the following languages: English, Spanish, Arabic, Armenian, Chinese, Farsi, Korean, Punjabi, Russian, Tagalog, and Vietnamese. You can also download the driver handbook for iPhone and iPad through the Apple App Store.
- Take practice knowledge tests, available in all of the languages above.
- Download the DMV Now app for your iPhone or Android smartphone.
- Gather all documents that can help establish residency and verify your identity.
