Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has temporarily eased driver's license requirements so that new teenaged drivers with a permit canobtain a license without having to take a road test, as long as they fulfill all other requirements, such as 40 hours of supervised driving. While that may make teens nervous about taking their road test happy, we can't speak for the state's other drivers.
"During these unprecedented times, the Department of Driver Services is trying to make it as easy as a process for people to get their license and to lessen the burden on people right now".
The owner of a local driving school says that she hopes "most parents won't just sign off on those 40 hours" and that they "take the time and drive with their kids" before they let them get their license. The rule alteration, which appears on Kemp's most recent executive order, will last through the end of Georgia's COVID-19 state of emergency, which at the moment is running through at least May 13.
