Graduated Driver's License


GDL laws are aimed at reducing the amount of teen auto injuries and fatalities as statistics show that drivers between the ages of 15 and 19 experience a very high number of collisions.

GDL programs are an effective method for reducing the crash risk of new teen drivers. GDL 's are designed to phase young novice drivers into full driving privileges gradually over time so they gain behind-the-wheel experience and develop driving skills in lower-risk conditions.
