GRADUATED DRIVER LICENSING SYSTEM FOR YOUNG NOVICE DRIVERS. STATE STATUS

A graduated driver licensing (GDL) system eases young drivers into the driving environment under safer conditions prior to full unrestricted licensure. This system consists of three stages, named by the type of license possessed at each stage: learner's permit, intermediate (provisional) license, and full unrestricted license. Although licensing practices vary from state to state and no state has a comprehensive GDL system, several states have components of a system. This booklet contains a table showing the recommended components of a GDL system, a map of states with GDL stages, and tables showing the components of licensing in states having three stages of licensing (California, Colorado, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin) and two stages, one being an intermediate license (Oregon and Vermont).
