Nick Hogan wanted to move to California from Florida. Apparently someone owed someone a favor and Nick got a job at a record company here. So, Nick didn't want to walk to work or take a bus or anything else that would keep California's citizens safe. Nope. He wanted to drive. Well, California said it wouldn't recognize the license Florida gave him which was restricted to driving to and from work.
Hmmm. What to do? Well Nick's lawyer asked if Nick could just have a regular California driver's license. “Well sure,” the state said. So, now because the California license is valid in every state, Nick can drive in any state but Florida. See, Florida decided to not enter any of his past driving information on the national database, so as far as any other state goes, Nick has a clean driving record.
It just seems like a really convenient way to get a license when you shouldn't have one. So, what that means I guess is that every drunk driver who gets his license restricted in Florida can just come out to California and get a brand new license. The trick, and lets face it, it is a trick doesn't work if the license has been suspended, but it does work as long as you have some kind of license even if that license only allows you to drive for an hour a day to go to your parole officer. Come to California and we will give you a full license.
Oh, and according to Nick's attorney, Nick wants to get back into drift racing, but at this point is not competing competitively. Umm. So, he's driving a million miles an hour, just not against anyone? Oh, well sure, he has shown he is responsible enough to do that. Damn I hate this family.
