In this section of ChORUS, you'll find state-by-state information pertaining to driver licensing policies and procedures. Since each state handles driver licensing and assessments differently, it's important to be prepared for the specific requirements you'll encounter. Drivers, caregivers, licensing authorities, researchers and others are likely to find this section especially useful. Note that at the top of the list of resources are databases, matrices, research reports, etc. that deal with licensing policies on a national basis (e.g., AAA's Digest of Motor Laws, which contains information for all states); subsequently, state information is presented in alphabetical order by state.
