Because of the virus outbreak, the State of Georgia is temporarily allowing 16 year-olds to get a driver license without taking a driving test.
Some 30,000 teens that had learner permits are on hold, waiting to be able to take the driving test to upgrade to a regular Official Georgia Driver License.
Well, now with a note from an adult stating that they’ve practiced, they can get permission to go online and print themselves an Official Provisional Georgia Driver License and take their friends on a road trip. In a couple weeks the real license will arrive by mail.
Some parents, some eligible teens, and some other motorists feel this is a bad idea.
What do you think of it?
Good idea? Bad idea? Why?
What could possibly go wrong?
What changes, if any, would you suggest?
