Student Drivers

GA's Teenage & Adult Driver Responsibility Act (TAADRA)

The Teenage and Adult Driver Responsibility Act (TAADRA) requires schools to certify that a student is enrolled in a school and not under expulsion from a public or private school in order to be eligible for a driver’s license or learner’s permit.  Students will not have their driver’s license or learner’s permit suspended for excessive unexcused absences or discipline infractions.  Schools will issue a Certificate of Enrollment to certify that a student is eligible for a driver’s license or learner’s permit.  The Certificate of Enrollment Form replaces the Certificate of Attendance and the Certificate of Eligibility of Driving Privileges form that were previously required.

GA Teen Drivers License Law (Joshua's Law)

Joshua's Law states that if you are 16 years old, you must complete a driver education course approved by the Department of Driver Services in order to receive a Class D License. Those individuals who do not complete an approved driver education course must wait until age 17 to become licensed.
