Driver's License Laws

The Dropout Prevention/Driver's License legislation reflects a coordinated statewide effort to motivate and encourage students to complete high school. The revocation of a student's driving permit or license will result if a student is unable to maintain academic progress or drops out of school.

The Lose Control/Lose Your License legislation reflects a coordinated statewide effort to suspend driving privileges of minors due to disciplinary action. The revocation of a student's driving permit or license for one year will result whenever a student is given an expulsion/suspension for more than 10 consecutive days or an assignment to an alternative educational setting for more than 10 consecutive days for one of the following reasons:

  1.  The possession or sale of an alcoholic beverage or an illegal controlled substance on school property.

  1. The possession or use on school property of a weapon or firearm that resulted in disciplinary action under G.S. 115C-391(d1) or that could have resulted in that disciplinary action if the conduct had occurred in a public school.
  2. The physical assault on a teacher or other school personnel on school property.
