Drivers license ( long story )

I know this is probably the place I shouldn't be asking but I couldn't find it online.. I'm 16 and attending drivers Ed and I'm getting my permit soon but the problem is I had bad infulences my last school year and I have a lot of unexcused absences due to skipping and so my boyfriend was telling me that they might not even give me my permit because I missed so much school. I know a lot of people say this but I LEARNED MY LESSON. I had to make up 30 hours and it was hell and now I don't wanna skip anymore but just because I was dumb and around bad convincing people I might not get my permit or drivers license .. Any advice ? Is it true or not. ☹️
