2015 means new laws take effect, including one that makes driver's licenses available for undocumented immigrants, say California DUI attorneys.
Starting Friday, January 2nd, California DMV offices will begin issuing driver's licenses to people in the country illegally.
Under AB 60, applicants must prove who they are, that they live in California and pass the driving tests. A new law will also provide access to auto insurance.
DMV officials say they expect about 1.4 million undocumented immigrants to apply for a driver's license in the first three years.
