I'm 16 years old, I will be 17 in October of this year. (2007)
It's not possible for me to get a normal drivers permit, or licence due to the fact that I'm not in any school system anymore.
My family is going threw a bit of a hard time, so I need to, and have gotten a job to help support them and myself. However, it's not possible for my family members to take me to and from work each day.
I have been researching this subject on the net, and came across the term "Hardship Licence" issues to minors with restrictions, work, medical, or school related. I am infact within thoughs boundireds, however I can not find any pages decribeing what I need to do further to obtain that permit. I saw a page for Tennesse, but I live in Georgia. I have not yet to find any pages for Georgia, and the DMV is obviously never very helpfull.
If I where to obtain a Hardship permit, would I being 16 and never before haveing had a licence beable to drive myself to work during day hours? If yes, what steps would I need to take to actually obtain the permit? Do I need anything special or such?
I actually just now saw another post with someone pretty much in the same spot as me. He was told that a Hardship Licence can only be obtained for a Suspended licence. Like I said, I have nevr had a liecence before, the state will not let me get one due to no longer being in school. Getting my GED and haveing to wait a year to get my liecence is obviously pointless, as I will be 18 in alittle over a year and could get simply get it then.
Maybe the term "Hardship Licence" wasn't the correct thing to say. Is there ANY way I can LEGALLY drive a car before im 18? That is a better way to rephrase this I suppose.
