DMV and Line[DMV, Feb. 18] – The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) today released statistics for implementation of Assembly Bill 60 for the first full month of implementation data.

* 59,000: AB 60 driver licenses issued in January 2015. A license is not issued until the applicant proves identity and residency with qualifying documents or through secondary review, passes a written knowledge exam, and completes a behind-the-wheel drive exam.

* 113,172: Total original (non-commercial) driver licenses issued in January 2015. This number includes the number of AB 60 driver licenses issued in January 2015.

* 74,028: Total original (non-commercial) driver licenses issued in January 2014. This number shows how many original driver licenses DMV issued before AB 60.

* 236,000: Number of AB 60 applicants applying for a license. This is the total number of unique individuals who started the application process in January 2015.

* 374,000: Number of AB 60 customer visits. Data identifies the AB 60 customers provided a ticket at the “Start Here” window, which can include starting an application, taking and exam or other transactions.

* 962,000: Total statewide driver license customer visits. Data identifies the total number of DL related visits statewide, which includes AB 60 applicants along with all driver license customer visits in January.

* 429,000: Total number of written knowledge and drive tests administered to AB 60 applicants. DMV administered 362,000 written knowledge tests and 67,000 drive tests to AB 60 applicants in January.

* 48% – Statewide written knowledge exam passage rate for all applicants for a new driver license. Includes AB 60 applicants. For comparison, 47% of applicants passed the written knowledge test in 2014.

* 67% – Statewide drive test passage rate for all applicants for a new driver license. Includes AB 60 applicants. For comparison, 61% of applicants passed the drive test in 2014.

All statistics are approximate figures gathered from Friday, January 2, 2015 to Saturday, January 31, 2015.

The DMV has a helpful AB 60 information webpage, http://ab60.dmv.ca.gov, 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.

    Well, it looks like AB60 applicants have enhanced the overall passage rate.

  6. I don’t understand why they don’t hire more people to keep the lines moving

  12. Emily Ball Emily Ball says:

    The AB 60 applicants had a higher passage rate! LOl

    • To play devil’s advocate, could that be because most drivers license applicants that are non-AB 60 are younger, less experienced and nervous teenagers? It would seem that AB 60 applicants may be older, more experienced and have probably been driving for a while. Just a possible explanation, but I don’t have the stats on age, so I’m just hypothesizing.

  13. Emily Ball Emily Ball says:

    No need for hypothesizing. The statistics speak for themselves!

  14. Lynn Witt Lynn Witt says:

    you can’t even get close to a dmv to take care of your business because of this crap. they should have set up temporary satellite locations for these yahoos to go to.

  15. Luis Hidalgo Luis Hidalgo says:

    I drive without a license

  16. Sandy Hack Sandy Hack says:

    DMV’s proud AB60 stats only illuminate how inadequate their preparations were. A display of massive incompetence that is being paid for by thousands of us who must renew a license at a DMV office.

  17. When they apply they should be arrested and deported haha.
