Is there a current bill that will allow for all qualified New Jerseyans to obtain a driver’s license without regard to immigration status?


Yes, legislation (A1738) introduced by Assemblywoman Annette Quijano (D-20) in 2018 would expand access to state-purpose only New Jersey driver’s licenses to qualified drivers who currently are unable to obtain a license because they cannot meet current documentation requirements. The legislation requires applicants to provide extensive documentary proof of identity, date of birth, and residency in New Jersey, in addition to passing the road test.
