1967 - Original airing of Star Trek "Arena" Episode: Kirk battles the Gorn commander (Saugus resident Bobby Clark) at Vasquez Rocks [watch]


dmv_newsThe California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) today posted the list of documents that applicants will use to obtain a California driver license under AB 60—the new law requiring DMV to issue a driver license to individuals who can prove identity and California residence and meet all other licensing requirements, such as passing the driver license knowledge test and behind-the-wheel driving exams.

“Our commitment is to successfully implement this law to increase safety on California roads and protect the high level of security in our licensing and identity verification process,” said DMV Director Jean Shiomoto. “Californians planning to apply for a new driver license under AB 60 should study for their exams and gather the required documents for proving identity and residency.”

State law requires motorists to prove identity and legal presence to obtain a driver license. Under AB 60, motorists who cannot prove legal presence must prove identity and California residency—and pass the required vision test, driver license knowledge test, and the behind-the-wheel drive test—to obtain a license. The regulations posted today list the documents DMV will accept to verify the identity and California residence of future applicants.

DMV encourages applicants to begin gathering the necessary documents and studying the California Driver Handbook available on the DMV webpage at www.dmv.ca.gov.

In developing the list of necessary documents, DMV held public hearings across California and reviewed thousands of public comments and valuable community input. In general, DMV will require fewer documents for proving identity when those documents are very secure and electronically verifiable. For example, the Mexican Passport (issued 2008 or later), Mexican Electoral Card (2013 version), or the Mexican Consular Card (2006 and 2014 versions) are each very secure and electronically verifiable and thus any one of those documents can be used to prove identity.

The regulations also describe a secondary review process for applicants who are unable to produce the documents otherwise required to prove identity. Under that secondary review, applicants must interview with  DMV Investigative staff who will attempt to verify the applicant’s identity. California is the first state in the nation to offer a secondary review process for applicants that lack typical identification documents to prove identity.

The list of necessary documents is posted on the DMV website here: http://ab60.dmv.ca.gov. DMV is committed to implementing AB 60 by as required by law. To expedite the adoption of these regulations, DMV is mailing and posting notice of these regulations on an expedited basis for public comment and approval by the Office of Administrative Law.

For more information on AB 60, including sample interactive tests, webcasts, and information about public comment, visit: http://apps.dmv.ca.gov/ab60/index.html.

A full text of the regulations is available on DMV’s website, on the AB 60 webpage at http://ab60.dmv.ca.gov. A summary chart of the list of necessary documents is attached.

  1. Yes I’ll officially be licensed

  2. Yet another reason to RUN out of this f*ed up state!

  3. I was getting tired of paying my no license tickets and my car getting impounded I’m STOCKED!!!

  4. Robin Shane Robin Shane says:

    This F’Ing Pisses me off. So one person decides they pass even though they can’t prove who they are? Yeah because, rapists, drug dealers, and other “desirable” criminals usually carry legal ID but just in case they lost it, they can get a yes based on an interview. They don’t have to read or write English though, which is good because all the signs on the road aren’t in English. OMFG. I need to shut up, before something comes outta my mouth that shouldn’t.

  5. California is such a joke.

  6. I hope someone sues the state if one of the illegals with a CA license kills a loved one.

  7. Teri Neal Teri Neal says:

    Its not only california but they have to have ins

  8. Unlicensed drivers do not know the rules of the road and do not have insurance…you should be supporting people to be accountable…it protects you….duh…!

  9. Most illegals drive more responsibly than some of these legit jerks who are always speeding in santa clarita cutting people off

  10. Conservative and pro-strong (federal) immigration policy as I am, I would like to ask the other contributors to this threat to consider the alternatives.

  11. Ron Rogers Ron Rogers says:

    This law is stupid. That’s why I moved to Texas. It won’t happen here.
