Should immigrants have the same right to drive as everyone else? If anti-immigrant legislators get their way, they won’t. House Bill 1186 would force the state to only offer driver exams in English without an interpreter, undermining years of precedent of offering the exam in a dozen languages. By denying non-English speakers the ability to take the test in a language they understand, the state would remove thousands of Missourians’ only transportation to work and school. It also endangers public safety by creating a situation in which people may drive anyway, without ever being tested on traffic laws or being able to by auto insurance.
