Explanation

The bill allows the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to accept an original birth certificate from a foreign country as secondary proof of identity for a “Drive Only” license. This may result in a potential revenue gain to the Special Transportation Fund due to more individuals qualifying for the license.

The Out Years

The annualized ongoing fiscal impact identified above would continue into the future subject to the number of individuals applying for the “drive only” license.
