California is issuing driver's licenses to illegal immigrants now

California's DMV offices just got even more crowded. The state started taking driver's license applications from illegal immigrants Friday, The Associated Press reports.

Applicants must submit proof of identity and state residency. They must also pass a written test to get a permit, and then a road test to receive the license. Their licenses will read "federal limits apply," and will not be considered valid forms of federal identification.

The state DMV estimates 1.4 million people will apply in the program's first three years. California is the 10th state to issue licenses to illegal immigrants.
