The Massachusetts RMV is preparing to receive more than 100,000 expected driver’s license applications from undocumented immigrants over the next 6 months, following a new state law that will take effect July 1. The Work and Family Mobility Act eliminates the requirement that driver’s license applicants have proof of lawful presence in the U.S.
Additional employees and funding are being added to the RMV’s operations, including multi-lingual employees to assist immigrant applicants. Applicants must make an appointment online or over the phone. Please see the Mass.gov announcement for a list of the remaining required documents/information, and WGBH for additional details about the new law and instructions for applying.
