Can you make out in an Uber? Many teens say there's no reason to get driver's license

March 5, 2017View for printing

At 16, Henry Stock doesn't see many reasons to get a driver's license.

He can walk to stores near his home in Hollywood, Fla. Many of his friends are fellow gamers he can talk to online. And he can use a mobile ride-sharing app to get a ride when he needs one.

So while Stock has a learner's permit, he hasn't yet made much of a dent in the 50 hours of supervised driving he needs to get a full license in Florida.

"It's more time and effort than I want to put into something that won't benefit me a lot right now," Stock said.
