GRADUATED DRIVER LICENSING SYSTEM FOR YOUNG NOVICE DRIVERS. GUIDELINES FOR MOTOR VEHICLE ADMINISTRATORS
This publication presents the guidelines for an improved graduated driver licensing system to assist states in licensing young novice drivers and motorcycle operators. It is recommended that states implement a driver licensing program designed to ease young novice drivers/riders into the traffic environment through three stages of licensing. Under this system young drivers gain driving experience under supervised conditions, are educated through driver training and improvement programs, and are exposed to more difficult driving experiences as restrictions are removed. Under graduated driver licensing young drivers are required to demonstrate responsible driving behavior prior to being issued a full unrestricted license. Although licensing practices vary from state to state, several states already have in place some features of a graduated driver licensing system and many states are considering graduated licensing for young novice drivers. States are encouraged to review the merits of the proposed program as they are planning for and implementing graduated licensing.
