Senate Bill 1690: Math Proficiency as a Requirement for Attaining a Driver's License
Oklahoma law currently requires that people applying for a driver's license or permit and who are under 18 attend school and show proficiency in reading. This bill would also require that proficiency in mathematics be proven.
A student would be required to pass either the state-wide 8th-grade math test, or another test approved by the State Department of Education. Homeschooled students would be at a tremendous disadvantage since they don't use the state's math curriculum and would have no control over the alternative test the Department of Education might approve.
