INITIAL LICENSES FOR YOUNG DRIVERS

The process of integrating a young person into the traffic stream can typically be segmented into four critical time periods which begin with the following four critical events: first drive on a public road; obtain a learner's permit and/or enroll in driver education; obtain a license; and gain access to one's own car. This paper focuses on the middle of this sequence, i.e., getting a license and the initial period of having a license. Following an examination of this critical time period, a graduated licensing system is recommended and its benefits with regard to this critical time period are discussed.
