Drop out? No driver's license, House says

May 18, 2011 4:38:00 PM - thestate.com
By a 55-54 vote, the S.C. House Wednesday approved a bill -- again -- to revoke the driving rights of high school dropouts.

The measure requires the state Department of Motor Vehicles to revoke the learner's permits or driver's licenses of students who drop out of high school.

Students who must work to support themselves or their families would be exempt from the requirement. All teens would be eligible for a license once they turn 18 regardless of their educational status.

After one House more vote, the bill goes to the Senate -- where it died last year.
