Undocumented Immigrants Eligible for Driver’s Licenses

States Where Undocumented Immigrants Can Get a Driver’s License!!!

As of January 2021, 16 U.S. states, issue driver’s licenses or permits to some or all of the population residing illegally in the United States.

  1. Virginia

The Commonwealth of Virginia recently passed a law allowing the Department of Motor Vehicles to issue “driver privilege cards” to undocumented immigrants. Beginning on January 1, 2021, Virginia will join 15 other states that allow undocumented immigrants to receive drivers’ licenses. This new law will allow an estimated 300,000 individuals to qualify for drivers’ licenses.

2. Maryland

In 2013, legislation was passed by Maryland’s legislature to allow illegal immigrants to obtain and keep driver’s licenses. This law repeals the 2009 requirement for proof of legal immigration status to obtain a Maryland driver’s license.
