DMV Launches Drive-Only License Program
New license not valid for I-9 employment purposes
On Jan. 2, 2015, the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles began the Drive-Only license program authorized under Public Act 2013-89. This new version of a state issued drivers license is for undocumented individuals who are 16 and older and cannot establish their legal presence in the United States or may not have a Social Security number. The process involves applying for a learner’s permit that can then lead to a drive-only license. Learner’s permits are now required of all new license applicants regardless of age.
The purpose of the Drive-Only license program is to improve public safety and to try to ensure that all drivers are tested, know how to drive, and understand the rules and laws for driving. A Drive-Only license is not valid for state or federal identification purposes and cannot be used to vote.
The DMV has provided an overview of this new license category and details on the process and required documentation.
