Ed - I think the drivers license is the exception rather than the
rule. I believe most, if not all, professional licenses are
individual per state. While I took and passed the "National Board of
Medical Examiners" exam, which is accepted in 48 states (I believe),
to get a license to practice medicine, each state requires its own
license be applied for. Why? $$$$
