DMV to work with lawmakers and federal officials

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

Undocumented immigrants are anxious to see what Assembly Bill 60 licenses will look like.

The DMV hasn't shown off the proposed design to the public, but Homeland Security has taken a look and asked for changes.

Federal officials want lettering on the front to clarify that the licenses are not valid federal identification.  But Department of Motor Vehicle workers said that was going to be on the back.

Homeland Security officers also want a unique design and color pallet so that the licenses will meet national security standards.

Undocumented Californians said they hope the design won't delay their opportunity to get a license.

The licenses will be available in January 2015 to drivers who have passed a written exam and a driving test.
