What happens if I say "No" (decline my consent) to registering with Selective Service when applying for my driver's license? Can I receive a driver's license if I refuse (decline my consent) to register?

Registering for the U.S. Selective Service System through the Secretary of State is optional. Declining this option to register does not affect your eligibility to obtain a driver's license. The intent of the law is to provide an additional method for Selective Service registration in addition to traditional methods.
