Driving is a privilege, not a right. You don't own your license, it's the property of the state, and can be revoked at any time if you can't follow the very simple rules of the road. Such is the case as well for your vehicle registration documents.
Driving is not a necessity. I know people with epilepsy that can not drive, but still make it to work every day.
