I've never been to Mexico, but I have seen how people drive in Colombia first hand.

I'm all for requiring that all immigrants, whether documented or undocumented, study the driver's manual, take the test, and get a drivers license.

I can't imagine why so many people want to exempt undocumented immigrants from the requirement of obtaining a valid drivers license.

That's just plain crazy!

Because a druver's license is a privelage confered to citizenss and legal residents of a state. Also, a driver's license is a form of identificication that enables a person more leway to move about. For the illegal immigrant who don't have avalid form of identification, how can we license them without a degree of certainity that they aren't using a false or stolen name. Having a valid license just enables them to continue that fraud. But yes, I see your point: if they don't have licenses, we can't ensure that they can adequately drive and that makes them at higher risk for endangering other people. The immediate solution would be to make illegals take driver's trainings and tests, but issue them ID cards and licenses stating their illegal presence in the country and make the IDs and licenses void for financial transactions. The long term solution would be to remove the problem alltogether by removing said persons.
