My stepdaughter will be getting her driving permit soon. As she reminds me, 11 days from now. The problem is, her biological mother is moving out of state and hasn't seen her in months and is not involved at all. My husband (dad) has sole custody of her and unfortuently has been working tons of overtime lately and doesn't know if he can get off of work to take her to get it.
My question is this... am I allowed to take her in to get the permit? I am the custodial step parent but am not listed on court documents as a legal guardian. I tried calling but they won't tell me (typical dmv). They tell me to come in and then they can give me information. I'm in Va, so if anyone knows the answer please let me know. I don't want to break any laws but she is counting down the minutes.
