License to Drive is a 1988 teen adventure film starring Corey Haim, Corey Feldman, Heather Graham, Carol Kane, Richard Masur, Michael Manasseri, and Nina Siemaszko. The film was written by Neil Tolkin and directed by Greg Beeman, in his feature film directorial debut. Les Anderson (Haim) is a 16-year-old living in Southern California who is trying to get his driver's license and has a crush on one of the more popular and attractive girls in school, Mercedes Lane (Graham). After failing the knowledge portion of his driver's exam, Les takes the road test (and passes), following a computer surge that he inadvertently caused. The Department of Motor Vehicles originally let him pass the exam (as his failing score was thought to be irretrievable after the computer surge) because his twin sister had scored so highly; they decided that twins could not be too different.
