Virginia DMV confirms Deferred Action students will be able to obtain Driver's Licenses!

Good news! A common question we are asked by Deferred Action (DACA) applicants is whether they can get driver's licenses. In Virginia, the answer is "yes."

"The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has confirmed in writing that young people granted "deferred action" by Immigration Customs Enforcement at the Department of Homeland Security will be eligible for Virginia driver's licenses and ID's. The statement was made in response to a request from the American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia sent to DMV Commissioner Richard Holcomb."
