With the unforeseen events taking place around the world, many young people with learners permits are left without any means of progressing their licenses further now that the DMV is closed and road tests are cancelled indefinitely. 

Driving is a great social distancing activity, as it can be enjoyed alone or with a family member. With public transportation no longer a viable option, students, nurses/healthcare workers, and couriers who are 18 or older and possess a learners permit but no drivers license must be given an alternative exam or waiver in order to grant them the freedom to drive.

My proposed guidelines for this new implementation would be as follows.

Potential drivers must:

- have held their permit for longer than 6 months.

- have no recorded driving infractions since acquiring their permit.

- be 18 or older by the time of requesting a full drivers license. 

The MV-278 pre-licensing class would also no longer be required unless a digital alternative for said class could be implemented by the DMV. 

Thank you for your vote, I hope our local government will realize the necessity of implementing a solution to this issue.
