AB 60 Driver’s License
A GUIDE FOR CALIFORNIA IMMIGRANT DRIVERS
What is AB 60?
Law passed in 2013 to make California
drivers’ licenses available regardless of
immigration status.
Immigrant communities and allies have
fought for 20 years to make this a reality!
YOU CAN APPLY FOR AN AB60 LICENSE ON
JAN 1, 2015!
What will my license look like?
Will have language on the front and back to distinguish from currently issued drivers’
licenses (proposed sample below):
SEE BACK FOR FEDERAL USE.
How can I use my license?
You CAN use your AB 60 license to drive and to identify yourself to police officers, for example
in a traffic stop.
You CANNOT use your AB 60 license to board an airplane or enter a federal building. It does
not make you eligible for any public benefits that you were not eligible for before getting a
driver’s license, and does not authorize you to work or give you the right to vote.

AB 60 Protections
CONFIDENTIALIT Y & ANTI -DISCRIMINATION
Will I be discriminated against for
using an AB 60 License?
AB 60 says that it is a violation
of the law to discriminate
against an individual who has
an AB 60 license.
Also, law enforcement cannot
use an AB 60 license to
consider your citizenship or
immigration status as a basis
for criminal investigation or
arrest.
Who will have access to information I
provide to the DMV?
Under AB60, the documents
you provide to the DMV are not
a public record and the DMV
may not disclose applicant
information, expect as required
by law. The DriveCA Coalition is
working to strengthen these
protections.
What’s Next?
What should I do now?
 Gather your documents.
 Study for the written test.
 Pay any outstanding traffic
tickets.
 Protect yourself from fraud.
Only the DMV can give you a
driver’s license. Do NOT pay
anyone for information or
services.
