Nick Hogan is going from one institution to another.
A source close to the family tells TMZ Nick is shopping around town for a new pad because he's planning on moving to L.A. for school. Driving school, perhaps?
We're told Nick is looking to make a "fresh start" and sometimes that's hard to do so in the city you grew up in -- which also happens to be where your best friend is comatose.
He better find a school near his house or get himself a bus pass -- his license is suspended until May 2011.
