Undocumented Immigrants In Maryland Can Start Getting Driver's Licenses

Play associated audio

Immigrants living in the U.S. illegally will be able to obtain a Maryland driver's license or identification card under a new law taking effect today.

Under the law, undocumented immigrants will be able to obtain a limited driver's license. That means they can use the license to drive legally, but not to enter federal buildings or board airplanes.

To apply for the second-tier license, drivers will need to show some form of identification, such as a birth certificate or passport. They will also have to pass written and road exams, and provide two years of state income tax filings.

The D.C. Council passed a similar law last year, which is scheduled to go into effect in May.
