Senate Bill 205: Driver’s License Restrictions for Students

Sponsor:
Sen. Tomblin (President), Sen. Caruth

Summary:
Provides for the denial or suspension of a driver’s license for any student who withdraws from school or fails to receive passing grades. This legislation places broad requirements on all license applicants that could seriously inconvenience homeschoolers, who might not be able to satisfactorily verify their 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:

1/10/2008(House) To Education then Judiciary

This bill failed to exit the committee of origin and is now dead.

HSLDA's Position:
Oppose!

Action Requested:
No action is requested at this time.
