Should the minimum driving age be raised?
There are some strong, data-based arguments to be made in favor of raising the minimum driving age. The rate of fatal crashes per mile driven is around half as high for teens aged 18 or 19 as for 16- and 17-year-olds. It is thought that raising the driving age to 18 could help lower the overall rate of fatal crashes.
Why the driving age should stay the same?
That’s because young drivers are more likely to take risks when compared to the older generations behind the wheel. Every additional passenger in a vehicle with a 16- or 17-year-old driver increases the risk of a fatality occurring.
Can 16 year olds drive others?
A: You are right; your friend is wrong. Minors under 18 are issued a provisional license. During the first 12 months after getting a license, they cannot drive other teens unless accompanied by a parent or guardian, a licensed driver age 25 or older, or a licensed or certified driving instructor.
Can a 16 year old drive to school alone?
Once your teen turns 16 and they’ve held the provisional license for a minimum of six months, parents have to go with their teen to the DMV and sign (under perjury) a document indicating they’ve completed the state’s minimum requirements. At this point, your teen can drive themselves to school alone.
What is the youngest driving age in the world?
Countries with the lowest driving ages (17 and below) are Canada, Israel, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines, the United Kingdom (mainland), United States and Zimbabwe. In some jurisdictions in the United States and Canada, drivers can be as young as 14 (with parental supervision).
