The two top law enforcement officers (here and here) in Los Angeles support the issuance of driver's licenses of some kind to undocumented immigrants. The reason -- to promote public safety. Access to a license would mean that undocumented immigrants would be tested on the basic driving rules and, once licensed, be eligible for (and required to secure) liability insurance. I made these same arguments several years ago in a law review article.
