It's not the responsibility of the DMV. They hardly give a shit about doing their job, why would they care about the legal status of the applicant? Pass or fail, then go back to filing your nails.

As for giving them licenses in the first place, the line of thinking is that they're going to drive whether or not they can get a license. It is meant to minimize harm. If they get into an accident or a cop tries to pull them over, they will flee because they can't accept responsibility without jeopardizing their residence in the country. Note that this license is ONLY for driving. It is not a valid ID for any other purpose. Despite what some shitty blogs speculate, they cannot use it to vote. Personally I still think it's a stupid idea, but most of the criticism directed towards it is anywhere from speculation to conspiracy.
