Oregon will start issuing driver's licenses to undocumented immigrants in January

SALEM ó A law passed by the Oregon Legislature in the summer of 2019 allowing people without documentation of legal residence to obtain a driverís license in the state went into effect on Jan. 1.

Because the Oregon Driver and Motor Vehicle Services is closed for the New Yearís holiday, and then the weekend, the first licenses wonít be issued until Jan. 4 at the earliest.

Those licenses will not trigger automatic voter registration, unlike other Oregon driverís licenses.

While the new law gets rid of the requirement to prove U.S. citizenship or legal residency to receive an Oregon driverís license, those wishing to get their license must still show proof they live in Oregon, and then pay a fee and pass a driving test.

2. Just curious how the state knows that people are who they say they are & that they are old enough ?

Seems like a good idea as long as both of those can be verified to avoid issues with identity theft

4. Well, that'll make them documented. And that's a good thing.
