Driver's ed required for N.Va. parents

By Washington Post editors

Northern Virginia parents of teenagers will be required to take a 90-minute driver's education course starting next school year before the minors can receive a license. A law passed this year mandates the course in Planning District 8, which includes all the Northern Virginia jurisdictions, WUSA reports.

"Driving is a privilege, not a right," says Jennifer Lewis Cooper, a Woodson High School parent, who helped persuade Virginia lawmakers to pass the law.

Northern Virginia parents of teenagers in driver's education programs will take a class in which they learn the new licensing laws, parental responsibilities and dangers of driving while intoxicated.

this is retarded... why don't they just say that if both a teenagers' parents have a job, they can't get their license.
