Licenses for Immigrant Drivers in Massachusetts
Aiming to improve public safety and allow more people to participate effectively in their economies, eleven states and D.C. currently provide drivers licenses for qualified residents regardless of immigration status. MassBudget's new factsheet Licenses for Immigrant Drivers in Massachusetts examines fiscal, economic and safety implications of expanding access to driver's licenses for immigrants who are currently ineligible to be licensed to drive in Massachusetts. This fact sheet also examines implantation issues that have arisen in other states and describes how states have addressed challenges related to verifying the identity of people applying for licenses from a wide range of different countries.
