    Colorado to give drivers licenses to illegals.

    So Colorado is joining a list of states who allow illegals to get drivers licenses. But since in Co (an other states) when you sign up for your DL< you also get signed up to vote, how will they stop illegals from voting? Also, since SSNs are needed for insurance, how will the CO police etc, ensure illegals who DO get drivers licenses, also get insurance (which is required by law)?
    And lastly, will these illegals who get these DL's, be required to take the tests in english, or given it in their own language? What of the practical exams? Or won't they be required??

    You have to be a citizen to vote, don't you? How have they stopped LEGAL immigrants from voting all these years?

    Also, since SSNs are needed for insurance, how will the CO police etc, ensure illegals who DO get drivers licenses, also get insurance (which is required by law)?
    The same way they do it for everyone else. Some states you must show insurance to register a car, not to get a DL. Are SSNs required to get insurance? Maybe they are getting a DL to drive a work/farm truck that belongs to someone esle who has insurance.

    And lastly, will these illegals who get these DL's, be required to take the tests in english, or given it in their own language? What of the practical exams? Or won't they be required??
    I don't know for CO...I believe in CA anyone, legal resident or citizen can take the test in Spanish...which I have no problem with. I've had drivers licenses in the Philippines, Panama, Korea and Germany...I don't think I would have passed any of them if I had to take them in the host country language.

    The road signs, etc. would be in the language of the host country, because you had to know what they mean when you see them...but the written questions and answers you could do in English. Like, I might know that "Alto" meant stop in Spanish...but to read and answer the question in spanish would have been difficult.

    FYI, it may be beneficial to read articles before posting them and asking questions; sometimes the articles contain the answers.

    From the NY Times article linked above: Under the bill, the licenses will be marked to prevent them from being used for federal identification or to vote.

    From the Fox News article linked above: The identification documents will be marked to say they can't be used for voting or to obtain federal benefits.

    From the Breitbart article linked above: For now, the licenses "will be marked to note [they] are not valid for voting or as federal identification."

    The law in question governs the issuance of drivers licenses and (state) ID cards; not auto registration/insurance. As far as I know, insurance is a requirement to register a motor vehicle and isn't needed to get a license. Obviously if they've passed a law allowing the issuance of drivers licenses to illegals, they've also considered insurance and worked out/implemented something. You may be able to find an answer via Google.

    From the Fox News article linked above: The documents must be renewed every three years, and to get licenses, people will have to pass driving tests.

    I'm sure more info/answers can be obtained via Google, or maybe even the Colorado DMV http://www.colorado.gov/cs/Satellite.../1177024843078.

    MM you had a DL issued by the government of Germany? In my day we took the sign test and were issued a USAREUR DL.

    I thought requiring everyone to have an ID was racist? At least it is if you want them to vote. But just coming here and giving them an DL, nah, thats cool.
    Progressivism; such great ideas, they need to force you to follow them.

    Same for me....what I'm saying is the test was in English

    You don't think the German govt. authorized that?
