What word should I use in that situation? "right", "entitle", "title" or other word? I don't want use "can".

If you have driver license, you have.... to drive a car.

  • Clarify it more. Where you want to use the word? Which way right, entitle, or title fits?

    Note that it should be "driver's license" or "driving license". Also, in British English, the second word is spelled "licence". Feb 6, 2014 at 9:34

If you have driver license you are entitled to drive a car. You also may use some of the following constructions: you have the right, you may, you are able to, you are allowed to, you are permitted to, etc. depending on the context.


If you have a driver's license, you have the privilege of driving a car.

In the United States, driving cars on public roads is a privilege, not a right. A driver's license grants this legal privilege. A driver's license can lapse, be suspended, or be revoked.
