Colorado Illegal Immigrants Push for More Offices to Give Driver’s Licenses

Advocates of illegal immigrants in Colorado who are complaining of long delays in the program to give driver’s licenses to those immigrants are pushing to expand the number of offices distributing the specialized driver’s licenses and identification cards.

At present, three offices offer the driver’s licenses and identification cards that were available starting in June, when the state became the tenth in the country to give licenses to illegal immigrants. The offices are located in Colorado Springs, Denver, and Grand Junction. The staff at the offices are funded by the special driver’s licenses fee of $79.58 and the identification card fee of $26.68 that the illegal immigrants pay to apply.

To receive a driver’s license, the illegal immigrants must submit proof of identity and residency, an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, and specific affidavits. They must also pass knowledge and road tests, according to the Colorado DMV.

A total of 14,299 illegal immigrants have received driver’s licenses; 2,218 have received driving permits; and 2,278 have acquired identification cards.
