Thousands of Georgian teens who get licenses without taking road tests must take one after all, the governor said | Instant News

A previous order signed by the governor allowed teens who met certain qualifications to increase their permits to licenses without taking road tests.

Nearly 20,000 teenagers in Georgia have received their drivers' licenses without a road test

Last week, the country said nearly 20,000 had increased their permits because the road test requirements had been abolished. The governor’s original order came in an attempt to handle the thousands of tests that were postponed during the pandemic.

But the new order will replace the previous one, said the governor. This calls for the Driver Service Department to provide a process for all drivers who have been granted a license without previously completing a road test to be able to complete it no later than 30 September.

Road tests can be carried out by testers who drive vehicles with applicants during the test or by long distance, the order said.

On May 6, the Georgia Department of Driver Services said that nearly 20,000 teenagers had received their drivers’ licenses without road tests.
