                             A driver’s license is a legal authorization, or the official document confirming such an authorization, for a specific individual to operate 

                                      one or more types of motorized vehicles—such as motorcycles, cars, trucks, or buses on a public road. Such licenses 

                                                  are often plastic and the size of a credit card. You must obey the traffic laws to get a driver’s license, 

                                                                        serving as an identification of the driver’s education and personal identity.
