Thousands of Nevada immigrants showed up at Department of Motor Vehicle offices Thursday to obtain driver authorization cards under a new law that made the state the 11th nationally to offer driving privileges to people in the country illegally.
In Las Vegas, long lines began forming before the doors opened at 8 a.m. By noon, wait times at the city’s two busiest offices were two hours or longer.
But the mood was more jovial than other agonizingly long DMV waits given the excitement on the part of immigrants who are now able legally drive to work.
