House Bill 2078: Drivers Licensing Requirements
Rep. Rodney R. Hubbard
This bill prohibits the issuance of a driver’s license or temporary permit to any person 15 to 18 years of age if a school submits information that the student is not in compliance with the eligibility standards. This bill also would mandate that “a student enrolled in public school who withdraws from public school and was not in compliance with the department standards for eligibility at the time of such withdrawal shall remain subject to the requirements of this section until such student demonstrates department standards have been achieved.”
This bill would require DESE to enact standards for homeschool students who did not meet department standards while they were in public school. This would hamper students who are seeking a fresh start by leaving public school to homeschool.
