A: Everything is open except "public service" (aka government jobs) because they make the rules. Welcome to government. You can teach your son to drive without them, but you'll need to deal with DPS to get him a license. The good news is that if he's old enough to drive, he's old enough to deal with this issue himself- no need for you to take off work. Drop him off and let him take the bus or an Uber to get wherever he needs to be next.
