Republican Steve Knight is now a member of the United States Congress as the first session of the 114th US congress commenced in Washington DC today.

Two thirds of the 46,000 people who applied for a California drivers license since AB 60 was implemented on Friday have failed the test.

Owners of La Cocina, a popular SCV-based Mexican restaurant, broke ground at a new location at the corner of Golden Valley and Sierra Highway.

Shortly after the “unexpected closing” of Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery, the owners announced they are rebranding the Valencia restaurant as Varsity Draft House.

All-American wide receiver Trent Irwin from Hart High School has announced on Twitter he will play college football at Stanford.

  1. Chris King Chris King says:

    Get them out! Keep them out!

  2. Haha. Its so funny reading comments that people post about failing the test but they cant even spell correctly. Maybe a grammar class should be required first. Oh well I guess they will eventually “passed the license” as long as they “due” their best lol

  3. They are still driving. They need to be deported

  4. James Parker James Parker says:

    It’s scary because these people are already out driving

  5. Fred Malcomb Fred Malcomb says:

    Can I go to Mexico and get a drivers license?

  6. Is this why they wouldn’t give me a appointment date till march 17th? (I applied a month ago)

  7. Todos quejándose pero cuando necesitan que les limpien su casa, bien que le hablan a MarĂ­a para que haga la limpieza… Y a Rosa para que les cuide a sus chamacos.

  8. Danny Lux Danny Lux says:

    Some of you people full of hate need to really reevaluate yourselves. I thought I lived in a nice community in California not in a Southern State. Get your heads out of your asses.

  9. Bill Webber Bill Webber says:

    If they can’t pass the test in English to need have no business being on the road or having a license

  10. Bill Webber Bill Webber says:

    Yeah I’m all for them having a chance but I’m not going to start driving down the street and seeing signs traffic signs in Spanish I’m not going to do that that is crazy

  11. Lots of haters up in the house…this is being done for the benefit of all…wether citizens or not…you must have and maintain insurance…if you do not. ..it is reported to the dmv and license can be revoked or suspended…do you want to be hit by an unlicensed driver with no insurance. ..?

  12. We can do it people and mexican will due their best to study, and we will show the u.s students that we can passed the license alot of people dream for a license know we have that opportunity to have one, kids moms dads brothers ect help the person to study donot be selfish is our turn to help them WE CAN DO IT PEOPLE NOSOTROS PODEMOS MI GENTE LATINA. My dad its not giving up

  13. Teresa Moran Teresa Moran says:

    Everyone need to get there nose out people’s business literally!! They are being offered a opportunity let them have it !! No one is perfect

  14. Learn English first

  15. What! They must have thought all you had to do was walk in and they would be handing out drivers license like free samples.

  16. Steve Gray Steve Gray says:

    One still has to study for the test and must be able to read. I believe that it is available in over 25 different languages. (I am a former driver’s ed instructor.)

  17. They probably thought they were just going to give it to them….bet they were surprised they also need to insure their cars

  18. England not even cops carry guns. sad sad sad

  19. I can’t believe it….waiting so many years for a Driver license y people is failing the test???????

  20. Its cause it’s stupid can’t miss more then 3

  21. Study before the test.Read the handbook. You need to know the laws before thinking you can just get in and drive. That will make everyone on the road safer.

  22. Gov. Brown just bought their vote that’s right now they can legally vote even when they’re illegal!!! Oh yeah and buy a gun!!!

  23. They fail because they are too excited and eager to have a license. .they dont study or prepare well enough. So they go and take the test.. unprepared. Also the spanish version is sooo difficult. The translation is way off. Dont judge. ;) be happy. Ive seen many non Hispanic drivers on the road not following the rules and many get DUIs. !!

  24. But that’s racist to make them take a test.You will here that out of some wacko soon.

  25. Samuel de Haro De Haro Bejar

  26. Carl Conte Carl Conte says:

    Sarcasm………….if enough fail the CA Legislature will simply order the DMV to pass them and give them a license. If they don’t have the fee…….force the taxpayer to pay for the drivers license.

  27. Haha! Can’t say that im shocked!!

  28. And, they all got back into their cars and drove themselves home.

  29. They probably think that the license makes them legal, and not the criminals that they are.

  30. well I’m Latino and a class A big rig driver and I can tell you I see my own people driving out there all the time and they are horrible drivers. have no clue as to laws of the road.

  31. Thank you Wendy, I was just about to post that.
    SCVTV, thats some crack-shoot reporting there guys! Bet you are real proud of that one baahhaaahhaa.
    Amateur hour at the SCVTV.

  32. Wendy Reed Wendy Reed says:

    Hello? That’s better than the average 80% fail rates of RENEWALS.

    “When it’s time to take the California driver’s test for a license renewal, one-third of the drivers flunk the exam given in English. Among aspiring drivers who have never taken the exam before, 50% fail. People taking the test in Spanish for renewal do even worse, with 80% flunking.”

    Because math. But I know, that doesn’t fit the anti-immigrant agenda.

  33. Keep trying amigos. This is great. Proud to be an American.

    • They are here illegally David!!! They are not citizens of the United States. So not American. If they come legally and take all the steps necessary to become a United States citizen, then they can say proud to be an American. Or are you just randomly saying you are proud to be an American?

    • Yes me. And I consider undocumented economic refugees to be more “American” than many natural born ones. Andale!

    • From what I understand, Andale has a few meanings…..hmmmm.

    • David, I think a lot of people have issue with the fact that they are here illegally and receiving benefits because of it. This isn’t just about getting a drivers license. Let me ask you this….(and I know you will have some lawyer talking in circles answer)…..can I go to your home country or any other country illegally and receive free benefits, a drivers license…etc….you know I could list many more… I’m pretty sure the answer is NO!!!! I’d probably get a free trip to jail though or maybe shot!!!! Just sayin’

    • Ha ha, I was gonna say the jail thing. Lol.

      I think we should try to be better than Iran. Lol. Race to the top…

    • Race to the top?!?!?!give everything away to people that are here illegally make the ones that are here legally pay, and just keep putting our country in more debt?!?!?! Yea that makes sense!!!!! NOT!!!!

    • So race down to the bottom with Iran? LOL

    • Your way of thinking is messed up. Nothing like that at all. We have plenty of people here legally that need help etc….. And they can’t get it. You twist everything to accommodate your twisted way of thinking.

    • Hey Denise Crawford Penta… COWBOOOOOYS!!!!

  34. Why Are non-citizens feeling entitled to the same privileges as citizens

  35. Fred Malcomb Fred Malcomb says:

    Why is it when someone comments on something that is controversial the liberals blast RACIST.

  36. Ah sorry John but many people do follow the law and complete the process. Its meant to be that way so you show commitment. Things that are handed to people, no matter what, are rarely appreciated.

  37. And these people have been already driving themselves around town without ID

  38. Robin Shane Robin Shane says:

    Really? I’m surprised. NOT!

  39. Laura Wilson Laura Wilson says:

    The lines looked like this even before the law got passed. I don’t see the difference!

  40. Well you all better hope they put up Street signs in Spanish…

  41. Nora Jaimes Nora Jaimes says:

    is this some big news scvtv Santa Clarita ? that they failed the test. do me a favor and stop discriminating .. and show some real news. being legal or not not everyone passes the test for the first time. I bet u didn’t. same on u

  42. Brian Bell Brian Bell says:

    The scary thing about this is that these people applying for a DL under AB60, have been driving the public roads for years.

  43. John Lazar John Lazar says:

    I don’t care if they’re handing out licenses like candy, but I hope they are making sure each person is fully insured.

  44. John Lazar John Lazar says:

    I don’t care if they’re handing out licenses like candy, but I hope they are making sure each person is fully insured.

  45. Good, we had to earn the right but these future Democrats are just handed everything anyways. When will we just say enough is enough?

    • Amy Martin Amy Martin says:

      Sadly never. It might “be offensive” if we made everyone in the country adhere to the same rules, regulations, and laws equally and without exception

  46. Good, we had to earn the right but these future Democrats are just handed everything anyways. When will we just say enough is enough?

  47. Paul Green Paul Green says:

    If the test was in English they would ALL fail.

  48. Paul Green Paul Green says:

    If the test was in English they would ALL fail.

  49. Edward Gresk Edward Gresk says:

    Make the test easier, the true liberal way. Im sure Mexico would be just as hospitable to any of us. Sarcasm off.

  50. Edward Gresk Edward Gresk says:

    Make the test easier, the true liberal way. Im sure Mexico would be just as hospitable to any of us. Sarcasm off.

  51. Why when a person disagrees with others does it make you a racist! Lmfao, dumb asses don’t know what racism means! That’s funny as hell, it’s like crying wolf!!!! No one believes you when it’s actually true…… Geeez

  52. Why when a person disagrees with others does it make you a racist! Lmfao, dumb asses don’t know what racism means! That’s funny as hell, it’s like crying wolf!!!! No one believes you when it’s actually true…… Geeez

  53. What?! Weird! Lmfao!!!!! I’m going to go buy a bumper car to get to work……

    • I totally agree with you…My fear is that they will drive the same way they do here in Mexico,don’t care about the laws, don’t care if they run down a dog, they just keep going, I say this because I live in Mexico and see this day in and day out, and I’m Hispanic myself, I say no to drivers license for undocumented people, I don’t care what race you are!!!!,

    • MarĂ­a you are just a shame for your race, a kind a worthless person, the kind of people that gets papers and and dont want your race to have the same opportunities….

  54. Caitlyn Jay Caitlyn Jay says:

    My question is how many are actually gunna get car insurance? I already had a friend how got hit by an illegal immigrant and they didn’t have insurance so they ran from the scene

    • Amy Martin Amy Martin says:

      I had a co-worker killed by an illegal driver. And since, if it went to trial one of the possible outcomes could be life in prison, he was deported without trial. Oh. And he had been deported 3 times prior to hitting my co-worker with his car and killing him for touching children. Yes. Touching like THAT.

    • If you don’t have insurance it is reported directly to the dmv…that’s the whole purpose to allowing them a dl in the first place…

    • Caitlyn Jay Caitlyn Jay says:

      They have to hit your car first before the DMV even knows they didn’t have insurance…

  55. Al Aird Al Aird says:

    They will change the test you know so the poor people that are taken advantage of can pass. Why on earth would you think they have to do ANYTHING that is LEGAL.

  56. Well if any of you can get to the state and whats to stop it go ahead….i wish you luck , and for those who need the license (not only mexican) advantage of it

  57. Amy Martin Amy Martin says:

    The only way I can find this justifiable is if after giving all these illegals drivers licenses, for which they have to admit they are NOT legal citizens to receive, is to have the Boarder Patrol agents in buses go to each of the addresses given on the issued licenses and round up ALL the illegals and drive them south of the U.S. boarder to drop them off C.O.D. to the Mexican government officials

    • You really wish that could happen amy unfortunately is not… and for that we aplaude you… thank you for your comment

    • Amy Martin Amy Martin says:

      Of COURSE I wish it could be true. If they get a wish granted…why shouldn’t I? Lol see..If it’s C.O.D. we’d get a WHOLE lot of money back to help repay all that intended for ACTUAL U.S. citizens, but was given to them instead. Give and receive and all that jazz.

    • Wow, your comment is disgusting. What a black heart you most have to wish people you know nothing about to be torn from their families for trying to obtain a simple drivers license. People like you are the real threat and danger to our society.

    • Amy Martin Amy Martin says:

      Blah blah blah and all that political correct self righteous whining. I love my country and you obviously don’t. If we all have to play by the rules to survive free, then why should we make exceptions for blatant law breakers? My voice and opinion means nothing in what is or isn’t done, even if it IS the opinion of the many. I know that, and you know that. And it’s killing this county.

    • Guess what genius, you’re technically an immigrant too. “Your country” is just as much theirs and just as much the Native Americans. I love these gunho redneck morons who know absolutely nothing about history and how we settled this country. Your sense of entitlement is humorous…typical right wing fundamentalist logic. #ignoranceisbliss.

    • Josue Diaz Josue Diaz says:

      Lmfao you love your country? A country that would take your life in a sec if you stood in the way of their money. You dumb whore. Obama needs to bomb you from existence.

    • Amy Martin Amy Martin says:

      Your right. I’m an immigrant from 5 generations back. Therefore I am an AMERICAN. When are you idiots going to accept being an AMERICAN is not an evil thing? Why is it ok for every race to be loud and proud of their nationality EXCEPT white Americans? And what gives you the idea that anyone is entitled to anything? But then, that’s the issue that every race in this country had EXCEPT Americans are given that is bankrupting the country. Why does everyone insist on segregating themselves with putting another country in their identity BEFORE America? And why did being ILLEGALLY in this country entitle one to everything that law abiding citizens are granted?

  58. Such ignorance….

  59. People is so racist in Santa Clarita, pinches gabachos

  60. I can’t believe all the hate. If Santa Clarita is so terrible, no matter who you are, just leave. You’ll Learn that was good here after you’re gone.

  61. I really feel sorry for any Citizen that has to go to the DMV for any reason in the next few months!
    I bet membership to AAA gets a big boost!

  62. All these ignorant comments and I’m here like…

  63. For all the people that don’t have AAA you may come into my office located in canyon country and get you sticker instantly;-) it takes 5 minutes. We will process all vehicle transactions and issue the tags right away. Call me at 6613100838. Thanks Angie.

  64. Haley Boo Haley Boo says:

    They should use the this time of not padding to prepare for the next time. Don’t be discouraged. Now they know what to expect and can be better prepared for the next time. Think of it as one step closer

  65. Oh crap?????????? That doesn’t make me feel safe! :-( :-( Mel

  66. And after they fail the test and walk out of the DMV, they get in their car and drive away anyway….

  67. Don Ree Don Ree says:

    And this comes as a surprise because….?

  70. Karina Cuervo I Told you hahaha

  71. Ana Gigi Ana Gigi says:

    … Racist towards anyone and everyone. For sure. Even towards us citizens like myself… Probably w incomes higher than theirs… ;) Ignorance and lack of exposure to true class and history. Vastly diff cultures. Don’t have to agree. I don’t. Yet no need to demean humans. Lol

    • Lynn Wallace Lynn Wallace says:

      It’ only racist when you don’t like what people are sayimg. Better get out that dictionary. You fail when it comes to the definition of racism.

  72. Pete Doyle Pete Doyle says:

    Good news is, they are all in the system now, just like everyone should be.

  73. No way haha…. I’m not shocked.

  74. This DMV IS AN ABSOLUTE DISASTER, worse then NYC. MAYBE instead of a million dollar Library with a fireplace they can build a million dollar DMV FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD TOO.

    • I go to the DMV once every several years, if that.
      When I do, I make an appointment beforehand and I’m in and out in less than 15 minutes.
      I wouldn’t want my tax dollars being used to expand and beautify a building I rarely ever use.
      At least I can enjoy the library with my kid.

  75. The difference is chrystal ..if I run an intersection and hit someone I have insurance , chances are if they do manage to pass the test I’ll bet a huge % will not even bother to get insurance . You’ll see when your rates skyrocket .

  76. After reading some of these hateful and, in some cases, ignorant comments. I feel ashamed of Santa Clarita for the first time.

    • I agree with you…sadly very racist….I refuse to move because they will not push me out

    • Ana Gigi Ana Gigi says:

      Oh darling. Just noticing it? Haha… Ignorance is bliss… Intuition from day one. 15+ yrs. Just wave smile and keep spending that $ where those racist folks work…lol It is our $ that allows them to keep their jobs.

    • Al Aird Al Aird says:

      Go back to Mexico, the Drug Lords and Mexican Government will take very good care of You I’m sure. You can drive there and nobody will hate you or make Racist comments about you. Mexico it’s a Great Country! Why didn’t you stay there?

    • Sean Goggins is that you? ^

    • Stefani Potts-Killam says:

      Lmao Branden!

    • Al , I’ll have to you know that I am a veteran of this country which I love. I have fought for the right for you to make such ignorant comments. I don’t care about your thoughts or ideas. Santa Clarita is a good city. I just never experienced or witnessed any of the citizens being so blatantly disrespectful. A point which you are currently proving. My comment wasn’t directed at any one race. I was talking about everyone displaying hate.

    • Betty Lu Betty Lu says:

      Ali needs to go back to his European country too lol

  77. Joseph Cerro Joseph Cerro says:

    Stupid illegals….. What has this world come to

  78. It’s all fun and games till one of these undocumented illegals wipes out your family at an intersection , cause they don’t know the difference between “alto” or “stop”I’m totally against this crap and I don’t really care if I can or can’t spell .. I can read !!

  79. Kory Rolls Kory Rolls says:

    Of course they did! Kyle Sutton

  80. Duh! They can’t read the laws and regulations!

    • Yes they can, its in many diff. languages

      • Stefani Potts-Killam says:

        If these people dont know english enough to read the street signs, they are not safe to be on the road! ANY race, Chinese, German, middle eastern, or yes… Mexican! It is not going to help by handing out booklets in spanish for studying the test if they cannot read signs! Period! If youre going to live in this country. Learn the language. If you cannot put forth the effort to learn english you dont deserve the right to have a license to drive, im sure it would be a cold day in hell that Mexico would be handing out free food, cash benefits and rights to americans!

    • I was being facetious lol

  81. So anyone who needs to go to DMV has to stand in this line or is it just for the driver test? This is ridiculous. Hope the state is at least making some money.

  82. Hola Karen Benitez, puedes creer todo lo que aquĂ­ escriben. I guess some of these people don’t know that some of us are bilingual.

  83. Actually, you really need to study the booklet. Some of the laws have changed and it is a lot trickier than it used to be.

  84. If our kids have to take drivers Ed first and pay for it, they should too. Anyone who hasn’t had a license should.

  85. If they cant pass the first time, they shouldn’t be driving! This is a BS law anyway.

  86. Liz Boeiend Liz Boeiend says:

    Sounds like a bunch of teenagers, thinkin they don’t need to study before a test psh! There are a lot people too that just select the first one they think is correct with out reading the rest of the list.

  87. Shoshi Maria Shoshi Maria says:

    I failed the test not just one time but four times

  88. Can they pay for the license with the EBT card they get from us??

    • Mrs Faceless These people work harder than you, Also when you say “us” don’t count yourself cz I don’t think that something good would come out from you

    • Ana Gigi Ana Gigi says:

      From you! Lorrie you must be very familiar w that.. Do you own one? I’m sure if you so it is my lovely dollars that pay for it! ;) ;)

    • &Monica Esquivel the EBT card, for people on welfare getting a free money. I am not faceless Mr. Jorge Fonseca! My profile pic is in support of my nephew who has brain cancer. I think his pic is more important then mine!! Ana Gigi I am very familiar do to the fact that as a LEAGAL US CITIZEN, I pay attention to all the hand outs all the freeloaders are getting. I am a LEGAL born US Citizen. I have been paying my US taxes since I started working at the age of 13. I am just as hard of a worker, if not more, because not only am I working to support my family, I get to support theirs. I have no problem with people from other countries coming here to better themselves. As long as it’s done LEGALLY.

  89. Bill Webber Bill Webber says:

    Yeah because he can’t read English and if they can’t read English than they can’t read road signs so don’t give them driver’s license

  90. No surprise here. Most of them are illiterate. They can’t even read or write in their own language.

    • What are you talking about? not because they don’t read English or write it doesn’t mean they don’t know their own language. (Communication)

      • Stefani Potts-Killam says:

    • The question is, what are you talking about?

    • What are you talking about? not because they don’t read English or write it doesn’t mean they don’t know their own language. (Communication)

    • The question is Steve C Terkanian what are your statistics? As a professor I would encourage you to talk based on facts. Please provide statistics to prove your point otherwise it makes it seem like you are talking out of your ass.

    • Do you even understand what illiteracy is??

    • They cannot read or write in their own language…

    • Yes I do but by saying most means more than 50% and that’s not true

    • 66% failed the test. Do I need to say anymore???

    • Steve, please provide a link to published statistics that support your statement that the majority of undocumented immigrants are illiterate.

    • Unfortunately, it’s true. I do not understand the logic of some immigrants who come here for a better life, then do very little to take advantage of every opportunity available to them, especially advanced education.

    • Steve, did you even read the article in the link you posted? It only says that 52% of total foreign-born adults are high school dropouts, NOT that they’re illiterate.

      Try again.

    • Read above. Craig Lieberman confirms it.

    • Craig Lieberman confirms what?
      He’s not providing a citation of published facts to support your argument either.
      Your claim of majority illiteracy among Latino immigrants is incorrect, simple as that.

    • Why don’t you go down to the DMV and perform a battery of tests on the undocumented immigrants and see what the results are. You probably can’t as you’re not qualified. One of the biggest reasons they can’t pass is they can’t read or write. I don’t know why you stick up for these people. You are what’s wrong with America today!

    • I did read the article, Christian. 52% of foreign born adults are dropouts. 41% of US-born Hispanics are dropouts. Is it your assertion that whether a person is a foreign-born or US-born dropout, they’re somehow not illiterate?

      On that note, this problem isn’t unique to Hispanics. I know plenty of white people who ARE high school graduates and are barely literate.

      The statistic is only relevant here because it was used in this post to provide a possible explanation as to why Hispanic immigrants are struggling with DMV tests given to them in their own language.

      I have to look up the stats, but to me, a casual observer who’s proud to have friends from many foreign cultures, it appears that emphasis on education in this subset of our population does not place a heavy emphasis on education.

      Is it not a real tragedy that the parents who came here to provide better educational opportunities for their children are not (in many cases) seeing their children take advantage of these opportunities?

      Compare these stats with immigrants of foreign-born Chinese immigrants and I think you’d be surprised how many in that population subset tend to have higher literacy rates and a greater propensity to pursue advanced education.

    • Craig, I agree that advanced education tends not to be prioritized by the Latino immigrant community as much as it should be.

      However, the argument here is not about education in general, it’s specifically about illiteracy as defined in this context by the inability to read or write in any language.

      I can’t imagine that you’re seriously supporting Steve’s claim that over half of Latino immigrants are incapable of reading or writing in their own language.
      That’s a fabricated statistic with no basis in reality, and no factual evidence to support it.

      As a comparison, DMV test failure rates in jurisdictions comprised primarily of upper middle class Caucasians tend to average between 35-39%.
      It would be similarly absurd to deduce from these results that nearly 40% of suburban OC residents are unable to read or write.

      The high DMV failure rate amongst Latino immigrants is primarily a result of taking the test unprepared. While a small portion of that higher-than-average failure rate might be attributed to a higher statistical prevalence of illiteracy, it does NOT prove or even plausibly suggest majority illiteracy.

    What’s the percentage of everyone else? I don’t see that broadcasted.

  92. Emily Ball Emily Ball says:

    I would like to know what the passage rate is for first time test takers in Santa Clarita. And perhaps that can be further broken down by age group. I know that when my daughter turned 16, the first time passage rate amongst her high school peers was about 50/50.

  93. That’s awesome! Best laugh all day.

  94. That’s what laziness will get you!

    • I’m sorry crystal and Amy that you are choosing to live in a community that you are so unhappy in. As a Mexican American, I have not experienced the racism you have. Especially not in my Catholic Church. Bring peace and joy wherever you find yourself and you’ll see change.

    • Amy Guerra Amy Guerra says:

      Diana when did I ever say I am unhappy? Not once did I. I like living here and better yet the fact so many people on here just hate the fact the Hispanic/Latinos are moving forward and it upsets them, gives me joy and makes me proud of who I am. I dont discriminate but I dont allow anyone to walk over me. Change is coming. Seeing so many people laugh at others failures, makes me want to help them now, by starting a tutoring group so I can help more Hispanic/Latinos obtain a license and prove others wrong and give them a sense of pride.

      Thank you for you pathetic two cents Branden Bender.

    • Did you all know that a white person can be critical of an issue or situation and NOT be racist?

      Aside from a few backwoods hillbillies, most of white America today have a spouse, kids, or family members that are NOT white.

      The issue is not race or color. If Germany was the country bordering the US, and blonde haired Germans were breaking laws and sneaking in to the US, it would be the SAME anger. The laws broken, money cost by people coming to the US illegally is coming out of taxpayer wallets. And no, illegals are not paying taxes. Not when your tax refund is MORE than the taxes you pay in….

    • I am dumber for having read Amy Guerra’s post….. Damn the bad luck!

    • Lynn Wallace Lynn Wallace says:

      Why is that illegals will come to the US and make many demands but won’t do it in their own countries? jajaja #hypocrites

    • Amy Guerra Amy Guerra says:

      They do make demands, but their demands are futile in their country because of corruption.

    • Kaycie Rosas Kaycie Rosas says:

      It’s not a race issue. It’s an issue because we are making things easier for illegals who do not contribute to society. My paycheck is going to support these people. Let me point out that I said illegals, not Hispanics. My problem is not with Hispanics. My husband is part Hispanic… look at my last name lol!

    • That’s your opinion, this country was founded on immigrants but they did it the legal way and were so proud they kissed the ground when the got off the boat. It’s too bad that it’s just not that sacred anymore

    • James Parker James Parker says:

      Sorry amy , people tend to hate criminals

    Santa Clarita a safe and very racist city… where most of the city hates you for being Hispanic/Latino and you attend the same church as them.

  100. Plot twist….
    There’s THREE attempts to pass the exam hahah
    The negativity in some of these comments is insane ! Citizen or not, first time is always a test run. Now that they’ve tested the waters, they’ll be licensed soon enough.

  105. From what I encounter on the road every day, 90% of SCV residents should probably retake the drivers’ test.
    Every single day I have to sit behind at least one driver at an empty intersection who seemingly has no clue that it’s perfectly legal to make a right turn on red.

    I would have to agree with you @Bibiana in order to to work for my company you have to pass a simple test and OMG you are right English speaking people with master degrees by far 75% to fail the test.

      What’s next? These people will be forced to learn Spanish, then new hires will only be bilingual. I’m sorry, but I think that discriminates against me, since I don’t speak Spanish.

  113. Karla Love Karla Love says:

    It’s sad how people are so happy when others fails .. Think of the time the beaners did better than you… People saying isn’t a racial thing it sure is. You don’t see any Hispanic making a negative statement

  115. I don’t care who you are, just learn how to drive. An on ramp is for accelerating. Not slamming on your brakes at the end so the big rig a 1/4 mile back can pass you. All day long. I’ve almost rear ended people because they don’t get it. Learn to drive, people. Read the book. Watch how people do it

    But how many people normally fail/pass?

  123. Renee Page Renee Page says:

    True…and it was illegal before, I just don’t see anything changing with the new law, that’s all I meant.

  124. Renee Page Renee Page says:

    None of it matters no matter how you feel, on what side you take, racist or not…many undocumented AND US citizens drive w/out a license. If they (whoever ‘they’ is) don’t pass they’ll still be driving.

    The amendment to AB60, AB60.2 actually does away with the requirement to pass the exam.

    Maybe, they should become legal citizens and pledge to uphold the law before they apply for this privilege. California lacks authentic leadership.

  146. Barb Green Barb Green says:

    Shocker! Not! Maybe this was the plan all along to take the $$$ knowing they will fail. And the fact that it is a test in Spanish and they still fail, makes it very telling.

  147. Desiree Diaz Desiree Diaz says:

    Thank goodness there is a test. I was worried that they were just handing licenses out, while my teenagers have to pay for classes and take multiple tests to EARN the right to drive.

      Eileen Gatica I’m 2nd generation mexican american. I know the struggles. My husband was deported leaving me here alone unjustly. But I still think we all need to earn the right to safely be on the road for ourselves and others. I believe they should take the same tests and classes that the rest of us. Did. You are the one who sounds “retarded” as you put it. Typical uneducated welfare recipient wanting everything for free and not working towards it and earning it instead.

        I grew up in San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys. My grandmother was six generation California Spanish Castilian blood . I am proud of that.

    • Ronda Rueck Ronda Rueck says:

      Are people not reading the article?? It’s revealing the test scores. The ones who past the test get a license. Am I missing something? Isn’t that how it works for all of us who aren’t “non educated welfare recipients”? Shame on you for that spew of hatred Desiree, that was disgusting.

    • Ana Gigi Ana Gigi says:

      Well… Teenagers don’t have to take a drivers ed course!

    • Anyone 18 or older doesn’t have to take a drivers ed course and can just take the test… Even white people believe it or not… So NO, Obama is not handing out drivers licenses to those illegal Mexicans like they are candy…

    • Driving is not a “right” it’s a privilege

  148. Sean Hollis Sean Hollis says:

    Maybe they should all take a drivers Ed course and actually learn the laws before just lining up.. Seems to me that’s how most of got ours
