GRADUATED DRIVER LICENSING: QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
This brochure answers the following questions concerning graduated driver licensing: What is graduated driver licensing? Why target only young people? Why not target all novice drivers? Isn't it unfair to restrict all teenage drivers? Why not just penalize the problem drivers? Can graduated licensing reduce crashes and save the lives of young people? Is a nighttime driving restriction a critical component of graduated licensing? When should the nighttime driving restrictions begin? What guarantees more supervised driving will occur under graduated licensing? Do parents support graduated licensing programs? How much does it cost a state to run a graduated licensing system? Who supports graduated licensing? Should graduated licensing legislation include language about insurance rates? Parents may be required to certify as many as 50 hours of daytime driving and 10 hours at night - isn't this a bit much? Shouldn't teenagers be allowed to drive to school, work, and their extracurricular activities? Isn't driver education enough preparation for licensure?
