HB 2045 would prohibit the Division of Vehicles from issuing a driver’s license or driver’s permit to anyone less than 20 years of age who does not show proof of either having a high school diploma or GED, or documentation that the person: (1) is enrolled in, attending, and making satisfactory progress in school; or (2) is excused from such requirement due to circumstances beyond the person’s control. In some cases, persons between 18 and 20 could receive a restricted drivers license.
This bill unreasonably links the right to drive with academic performance. Not only does it essentially create a second set of compulsory attendance requirements that must be followed to get or maintain a driver's license, it also creates reporting requirements that would create a tremendous hassle for homeschooling families.
