Unexcused absences could result in revoked license for teens

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – If your teen misses multiple days of school without an excuse, his or her driver’s license could be suspended; that’s according to the Bibb County Board of Education.

Georgia’s Teenage and Adult Driver Responsibility Act of 1997 require school systems to certify that students’ attendance allows him or her to have a learner’s permit or driver’s license.

School districts must report students who have 10 or more unexcused absences. The act applies to all teens ages 15-17.

Teens reported will have their license revoked for a year by the Georgia Department of Driver Services.
