New Mexico immigrant licenses

Posted: Updated:

New Mexico - Allowing undocumented immigrants to obtain driver's licenses or requiring lawful residency identification is said to have an insignificant impact on the percentage of uninsured drivers in New Mexico.

A new study shows that lawful residency requirement has a minimal impact on the percentage on uninsured motorists.

New Mexico is one of only three states where an illegal immigrant can get a driver's license because no proof of citizenship is required.

The other two states are Washington and Utah.
