Last month, Georgia waived its road-test requirement for most drivers in an effort to help fight the spread of the coronavirus. In early May, the state said it had issued driver’s licenses to thousands of teenagers without one. Wisconsin is doing something similar.
Though in Georgia the teens all held permits and had completed the state’s mandatory driver education requirements, many worry that the results could be “catastrophic.”
What do you think? Do you have your license? Was passing the road test an important part of your process in learning how to drive competently? Why or why not?
