House Bill 708: Requirements for Issuing Drivers Licenses

Author:
Representative Jim Guest

Summary:
This bill requires driver’s license applicants under 18 to show high school enrollment, attendance rate greater than 90%, and a minimum GPA of 1.75 or otherwise determined satisfactory progress. This legislation places broad requirements on all license applicants that could seriously inconvenience homeschoolers, who might not be able to satisfactorily verify their enrollment, attendance or GPA. HSLDA would not oppose similar legislation if it more efficiently targeted the public school students with academic or disciplinary problems it was intended to restrict.

Status:
