Graduated Driver Licenses for Teenagers


Graduated driver licenses (GDL) are ones that confer greater freedoms on drivers as they age through their teen years. Texas has graduated drivers licenses now.

The rest of this post is information about the proposed law, referred to as STANDUP (for the Safe Teen and Novice Driver Uniform Protection Act). Most of this information is taken from the Web site of Allstate Insurance Company, a big proponent of graduated driver licenses.
