An unskilled driver is a danger to others, potentially even life-threatening. The worst an unskilled computer user can do is inadvertantly pass around a virus. I don't think it's a fair comparison. Though a virus could have the potential to be life-threatening in some situations (perhaps it jams the bandwidth of a hospital's internal network), it's much rarer.

Besides that, licensing computer users could get to be a thorny issue very quickly. ("You use GNU/HURD? Sorry, it's not on the approved list of operating systems. Your computer license is revoked.")
