DMV: be prepared!
Were you recently granted citizenship or DACA status? Before you go to the DMV to get a driver’s license, you should know what to bring. Make sure that you have all of the following:
1. Proof of U.S. Citizenship or lawful presence in the country
- A work permit
- A government-issued birth certificate
- A U.S. passport
- A foreign passport with U.S. immigration documents
2. A Social Security Number
- DACA recipients can get a SSN from the Social Security Administration
3. Proof of full legal name
- Birth certificate
- Marriage certificate
- Work permit
4. Proof of your address
- A bill
- A bank statement
In November, Oregon will vote on the Driver’s Card Referendum. The Driver’s Card law would give undocumented persons the chance to take a driving test and apply for a temporary driving card. This would regulate drivers on the street and give community members the mobility that they need. Already a citizen? ILG is registering people to vote! If you can’t vote, that’s okay––there are other ways to help as well.
