Umm, they've been asking this since at least the early 80's. I recall getting that question when taking a bunch of kids to Nova Scotia in '86 (on bicycles no less, like I want to lug an extra 5lb of useless weight up those hills NO THANKS!) and a different group to Toronto the next year.
For the record, I did not live in a state that had licenses at the time, and if I did, I would not have had a license then.
Just sumpin' they do, 'eh?
