  • California driver's licenses​

    Since January 2015, undocumented immigrants h​ad their first opportunity to obtain California driver's licenses​ thanks to the passage of Assembly Bill 60 (AB60) by the state legislature on September 12, 2013. The bill allows undocumented immigrants to legally drive in the State upon successfully completing all required testing. The bill is a major step in improving road safety in California by ensuring that all California drivers are driving vehicles legally. Gemalto is supporting California Department of Motor Vehicle (California DMV) with its advanced ID Verification​ software solution now in use in its nearly 200 offices. DMV officials can verify the authenticity of such documents as passports, identity cards and driver licenses by simply checking the graphical data and security features against reference templates from an array of issuing countries.
