FL: New bill proposes undocumented immigrants to receive driver license

Undocumented drivers licenses

SARASOTA (WWSB) - Undocumented immigrants living in Florida could get access to legal driver licenses in the state.

That’s if a new bill passes through the house and the senate.

The bill proposes that people living here illegally could use documents like international birth certificates or a foreign passport, to register for a Florida license.

Under current Florida law, you must prove your U.S. citizenship or show a green card to be legally allowed to drive in the state.

To date, the bill has not been heard by a single committee in the Florida house or senate.

This year’s legislative session is about a third of the way done.
