It's only been a few weeks since Iowa started allowing undocumented immigrants to get a driver's license.
In a story you'll see only on CBS 4, is the story of one QC woman who now has the license to prove, she's legal to drive.
We first introduced you to Nancy Rozo in late December, when Iowa's dot originally said she wasn't allowed to get her driver's license because she isn't a U.S. Citizen.
Then, Nancy wouldn't let her face be shown on camera, but things are different now that she can legally get behind the wheel.
Nancy Rozo said when she read the requirements list to get an Iowa driver's license, she knew her dream had become a reality, "It says that Iowa DOT will not issue driver's licenses to deferred action applicants, and it was crossed off."
In January, the state's department of transportation decided to issue driver's licenses to immigrants brought into the U.S. under the age of 18.
Nancy said it was the first time she entered the DMV, after driving without an Iowa license for years, "it feels like a huge weight has been lifted because I can drive. I'm not afraid anymore."
But it really hit home the moments right before she found out she passed the tests, "When they handed me my license, I was looking at it. I had it in my hands. I was reading all my information, my name, my picture, and it was just like I was dreaming. One of my dreams has actually come true."
Now, she can put the keys into the ignition, fearlessly.
"Thanks to those people that really consider us Iowans. now we can drive. Don't ever take you driver's license for granted."
said the most nerve wrecking part of the test was parallel parking.
