A license is permission to use THEIR roadways whilst driving YOUR car. Verification of safe handling is just extra, and often ineffective verification if you ask me.
Sorry, you are incorrect. Driving on public roadways is not a right. They can revoke your permission to drive on their roadways at will according to the govt's procedure of whose jurisdiction you reside within. If you don't believe me go ask a highway patrol officer, lawyer or judge.
CC ought to be a right, but at the moment it is not considered such, it is a privilege similar to using public roadways to drive your vehicle.
Everything you wrote 100% ignored the statements....as written out for you....about how anyone can use the roads without a drivers license. edit: Not only that, you can have a drivers license and drive ANYONE's car, doesnt have to be your own.
No one said that using the roads is a 'right' or even a privilege. You can be restricted from using them anytime you break the laws for using them. Just like with any other laws pertaining to public property/domain. However, drivers licenses ONLY pertain to *driving* a vehicle on those roads...and you have to obey the relevant laws, just like anything else.
But **you do not need anything** to use public roads (except some change for toll roads I guess). Passenger, bus, limo, taxi, horse, walking, goods and services.....NO drivers license required.
