Starting next year, undocumented immigrants in California will be eligible for driver's licenses.
When we talked with the new law's author State Representative Luis Alejo, he said it was long overdue.
"It's certainly going to be a benefit when people know the rules of the road and they're tested in their license. That makes the roads and highways more safer for everyone," said Alejo.
But this plan has hit a speed bump. Some undocumented immigrants say they don't trust the licenses. They believe the info they hand over to authorities could be used to deport them.
