Driver’s licenses for immigrants could be available by May 1
New Jersey driver’s licenses could be available for undocumented immigrants by May 1.
The state Motor Vehicle Commission approved regulations for the new licenses on Friday.
The licenses were originally supposed to roll out by Jan. 1, but the effort was postponed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The rules also loosen a requirement that applicants provide a Social Security or tax identification number.
Supporters of the law rallied outside the MVC offices in Trenton earlier this week to call on officials to approve those regulations.
