Immigrants in the Los Angeles area may have more than one thing to apply for soon. While many wait to become a U.S. citizen, the option will be available in January for immigrants who are undocumented to get their driver’s license. This could potentially solve a lot of short-term problems for immigrants in California, including making transportation much more accessible to many.
However, there are quite a number of hurdles that still need to be jumped before these licenses can come into effect. They are supposed to be launched in January 2015 but there are still issues like the design of the license itself and arguments over whether or not documentation should be provided before the licenses can be given out.
