Department of Motor Vehicles officials say they want to make sure that the requirements for the undocumented immigrant licenses are as stringent as the ones for standard driver licenses. Those require a birth certificate or passport.

Armando Botello with the DMV says conversations are underway with several Latin American countries about their consulate-issued IDs.

“We are going through the process of finding out which ones are the more secure,” he says. “We might accept some and not others and at this point it hasn’t been decided yet.”

The DMV is seeking ideas about the new licenses from potential applicants at hearings around the state.

The new law goes into effect January 1, 2015.
