Program: Drive Only License Program for Undocumented Individuals

Agency: MOTOR VEHICLES, STATE OF CONNECTICUT DEPARTMENT OF


Resource Number: 23195745
Description
On January 2, 2015, DMV will start a Drive Only program for undocumented individuals who are 16 and older and cannot establish their legal presence in the United States or may not have a Social Security number. 

The process involves applying for a learner's permit that can then lead to a drive-only license.  Learner's permits are now required of all new license applicants regardless of age.  The Drive Only license program is authorized under Public Act 2013-89.  A Drive Only license is not valid for state or federal identification purposes and cannot be used to vote.

Those 18 and older must hold the permit for 90 days, while 16 and 17 year-olds have special training requirements and must hold the permit for a longer period of time. A road test is taken after having the learner's permit for the required time for training. 
 
The written knowledge test will be offered in the following languages:  English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian and Polish.  Mandarin will also be available shortly.
