What Are Some of the New California DMV Laws?

Some of the newest California DMV laws as of 2015 include AB 60, which requires DMV offices to issue driver licenses to individuals who present proof of identity and California residency and who pass a written and road test. Additionally, California DMV authorized a new ID designation for veterans.

Assembly Bill 60 was passed in December 2014. The effect of this new law is to allow individuals who can prove residency and identity, regardless of their legal status in the United States, to obtain California driver’s licenses. As of December 2015, California DMV had issued 574,000 driver's licenses under AB 60.

The new veteran's ID regulation allows veterans of the armed forces to obtain an indication of veteran status on their driver's licenses and state identification cards. In order to do so, veterans need to show a copy of their military discharge documents and proof of identification.
