Pet Driver's License with Joy
WARNING: Some pets should not drive.
Chloe is a golden retriever and a good driver, but she was having trouble with the written test. She was encouraged by the DMV to forget her crazy idea of ever getting a driver's license. Not to be detoured, Chloe enrolled in night school and eventually passed the written test. Only to hit the next road block- No license classification for canines or any other animals for that matter! So, Chloe founded the PMV (Pet Motor Vehicles) and began issuing the Pet Drivers License® to all pets- At the PMV requirements are lenient...no written test required! (Not all pets can afford night school). Listen to find out how you can get your pet a driver's license.
