Massachusetts to Allow Undocumented People to Apply for Driver’s Licenses 

HeadlineJun 10, 2022

The Massachusetts state Legislature voted Thursday to override Republican Governor Charlie Baker’s veto of a bill allowing undocumented people to obtain driver’s licenses. Beginning in July 2023, anyone showing a foreign passport or consular identification document and another form of ID can apply for a motor vehicle license in Massachusetts. Sixteen other states and the District of Columbia already have similar laws on the books.
