Do You Need Driver License to Drive?
As adults in the US must drive for daily errands, driving is an integral part of American life. Sometimes these errands seem simple enough that no one gives much thought to them – until one errand turned into a major problem for warehouse worker Francisco Torres from Millville. He went into a local liquor store hoping to purchase beer but was asked for his driver’s license; without it he couldn’t buy any beers – an example of difficulty faced by immigrants when trying to acquire such documents.
Many states place restrictions on people seeking a driver’s license. Some require you to be of a certain age in order to receive their full license while others impose specific terms of supervision that require driving with another licensed driver present at all times. Such limitations prevent individuals from fully participating in their communities, inhibiting growth and development as a whole.
To obtain a license, you must pass both written and driving tests in your state. In addition, pre-licensing or driver education classes may also be mandatory for you. Furthermore, documents proving your identity, date of birth, residency (IDNYC can serve as proof) are needed as proof. Once passed and requirements completed successfully, then apply for your license!
