A press release by the California DMV on May 4th, 2017 detailed new requirements for California drivers who were seeking to obtain a commercial driver license, or those who held such licenses and were looking to renew them. The new requirements were specifically related to the acceptable forms of documents used for applying or renewing commercial licenses. The press release stated. “All new commercial driver license applicants will be required to provide the DMV with proof of California residency as well as proof of U.S. citizenship, lawful permanent residency, or legal presence.”
Despite the California DMV requiring proof of legal presence since 1994, these new requirement changes reduce accepted documents in an effort to align to the Federal Government’s requirements which were adopted in 2012. For a complete list of accept documents to verify legal presence in California, view the DMV’s website here.
