GA's Teenage & Adult Driver Responsibility Act (TAADRA)
During the 2015 Georgia General Assembly, significant changes were made to the Teenage and Adult Driver Responsibility Act (TAADRA). Effective July 1, 2015, schools will no longer be required by state law to submit noncompliance data for students with excessive unexcused absences and certain discipline infractions. Schools will simply have to certify that a student is enrolled in and not under expulsion from a public or private school to be eligible for a driver’s license or learner’s permit. Students will no longer have their driver’s license or learner’s permit suspended for excessive unexcused absences or discipline infractions. Schools will now issue a Certificate of Enrollment from 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.
