Learn English – Is it a “driver license” or a “driver’s license” or a “drivers license” or…what


I've often wondered why my Ohio license is called a "driver license". It is awkward to say it like that.

Wouldn't something like driver's license be more appropriate?

Or driving license (like hunting license)?

results from the almighty google
