Best Answer

If you drop out of high school at the age of 16 you are still legally able to get a driver's license as long as you pass the required drivers education classes. You can also get a job legally as well. Many employers may ask for a signed form from either a principal or school counselor stating that you have dropped out and are no longer a student. This is because there are child labor laws that federally state a student is not allowed to work more than 15 hours a week if it's during an academic year. This, of course, does not include summer vacation when students can work up to 40 hours a week.

Like another person said...

Many employers will not want to hire a 16-year-old who has dropped out of high school.

You can expect to make about $8 an hour for the rest of your life, which will put you below the poverty level. Do yourself and your future the biggest favor of your life: Spend a few years getting a decent education so you can enjoy a fulfilling lifetime.
