It is mandatory to have a valid driver's license to legally operate a vehicle in any state of America.
Allegedly a judge in New Hampshire claimed that state's Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has been withholding information that a driving license in the U.S. is required only when driving commercial vehicles. New Hampshire residents who want to apply for a CDL must hold an existing and valid New Hampshire license. According to the New Hampshire DMV, 'Residents of New Hampshire are required to have a valid New Hampshire driver license to operate a vehicle in the state legally.' The DMV's Bureau of Driver Licensing administers all the tests required to obtain a driver's license, whether an operator license, a commercial driver's license, a motorcycle endorsement, a moped, a temporary license, or a non-driver identification.
