    Because driver's license laws have changed for minors, you need to have a specific power of attorney created for your parents, which specifies that they are empowered to authorize your daughter to go to driver's ed, and obtain a provisional license.

    Additionally, because your parents do not have guardianship of your daughter, the state is unable to allow them to be financially responsible for her in case of a traffic accident. This will make it difficult when they want to obtain car insurance for her as well. When you consult an attorney regarding the new power of attorney be sure that there is wording that specifies financial responsbility with regards to operating a motor vehicle.

    It hard to answer "why" questions for a lawyer. Whether you like it or not, rules are rules and bureaucrats are bureaucrats. Don't waste your time trying to make a government position make sense. Do a durable, general power of attorney that allows your parents to do everything for your daughter. Have it done bt an Idaho attorney. It would probably be less that $150 at the most. Just do what they want and quit agonizing over government regulations. You'll NEVER win over the ladies at the counter of DMV.

    They will need Temporary Guardianship. Power of attorney only give them the right to enroll her in school and to seek medical attention. The T G gives them the right to give permission for her to do something. It's also a way for the school to cover their asses in case something happens, and this way you can't go back and say " i didn't say it was OK".

    So, give them another power of attorney, what's the big deal. I understand it is an irritant to have to do it again but hey, it's for your kid right? The power of attorney your folks had may have expired or maybe it was worded too general.
