Driving Laws by State
Many states have implemented teen specific driving laws
Some Graduated Driver's License (GDL) programs create minimum age and supervised driving requirements for young drivers, and implement nighttime driving and passenger restrictions. GDL laws were established across the U.S. to help put an end to teen driving fatalities.
Teens are typically the most inexperienced drivers on the road, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and vehicle collisions are their number one cause of death. These GDL laws have helped save teen lives by reducing their crash rates, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
