NV to Start Issuing Driver Authorization Cards

Posted: Updated:

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- Tens of thousands of Nevada immigrants living in the United States without legal permission will be able to get behind the wheel and travel the roads of the Silver State legally under a new law that takes effect with the new year.
 
SB303 was passed overwhelmingly by the 2013 Nevada Legislature and signed into law by Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval, Nevada's first governor of Hispanic descent.  It's one of 45 news laws that took effect Jan. 1.
 
Starting Thursday, the Department of Motor Vehicles will begin taking applications for and issuing driver authorization cards to Nevada residents who cannot meet citizenship requirements for a standard driver's license or identification card.
 
Nevada becomes one of 13 states and the District of Columbia with programs or plans to offer similar cards.
