Florida driving rules say no license for dropouts

This is correct. Florida does not allow minors, who show poor attendance or have dropped out of high school entirely, to keep their driving license or permits.

Florida, just like many other sites, has rules to encourage teen drivers to remain in school. The law works as follows. All students who are at least fourteen (14) years of age and have missed fifteen (15) or more days in school (unexcused absences), will be reported to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. The information that is reported will consist of the student’s name, sex, date of birth and social security number. This is a Florida Statute, therefore it is required by law that all schools do this.

Additionally, a teenage drivers driving permit will be denied if he or she does not complete and show a high school diploma. Another option besides the high school diploma, would be to show proof that he/she is preparing to take the Test of General Education Development (GED).
