How can my teen get a driver’s license?
Most states require teens to follow some form of Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL). These programs aim to lower the death and injury toll among teen drivers by allowing them to gain driving experience before getting full driving privileges. GDL programs generally include three stages:
- Provisional permit: supervised driving, followed by a driving test
- Provisional license: limited unsupervised driving
- Full license: standard driver's license
