Also be aware that you can take the written test in a number of different languages, but the driving test itself will require you to communicate with the examiner in English. You cannot bring along an interpreter. You will need to respond to instructions in English.
Be prepared to prove your identity with photo ID and your California residency with utility bills or lease agreements.
Your Driver's License will obviously allow you to drive, but it does not create other rights such as voting or authorization to work. It is true that a license issued to an undocumented immigrant will be marked differently from ordinary licenses and will contain the words, “FEDERAL LIMITS APPLY.” Regardless, state and local law enforcement agents face certain restrictions against discriminating against someone because he or she holds or presents such a license.
We would like to remind you that you should not have to pay anyone for help with this application. Not only do organizations exist that will help for free, but it is actually illegal for someone to charge you to fill out the application form on your behalf. When new services like this appear, it is common for notarios and other unscrupulous individuals to take advantage by charging high fees for a routine service. As with any service connected with immigration, exercise caution.
