Beginning July 1, the California Department of Motor Vehicles will require customers applying for a driver’s license or identification card for the first time to provide two documents that prove California residency.
The new law does not apply to applicants who are renewing, applying for a duplicate or correction to their current driver’s license or identification cards.
Examples of acceptable documents to prove California residency are: rental or lease agreements with the signature of the owner/landlord and the tenant/resident, deeds or titles to residential real property, mortgage bills, home utility bills (including cellular phone), and medical or employee documents.
