    Default Diploma and Drivers License

    My son is 17 and completed his high school requirements in December. We went ot get his drivers license and the DDS requested a diploma that had a seal on it. We used a non-accredited approach to homeschooling. Is there anyone out there that can help me?

    Hi there. That's weird...I had heard of several families just needing to submit copies of their monthly attendance records (my oldest is only 12 so I don't have first hand experience). I think there are Drivers Ed courses they may need to take? I would check with HSLDA and GHEA and see if they can give you any concrete information. Sorry I wasn't more help...

    Default drivers license...

    It is my understanding that your letter of intent along with attendance verification is all that is needed for your teen to get their license. "A Georgia DDS Certificate of Attendance form must be signed and notarized from your school. It is only valid for 30 days. All applicants under the age of 18 not enrolled in school must provide a GED diploma, high school diploma, or an attendance form from your local Board of Education if you are enrolled in an approved home school program."
