Personal GDL for Older Novice Teen Drivers

October 7, 2014
Recent studies from CIRP@CHOP and AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety suggest that organizations that support families with safe teen driving programs now need to think about the families of teens who are waiting to get licensed beyond their 18th birthday. A substantial proportion of teens are delaying that rite of passage until they can really afford and need to drive. According to the research, teens that delay licensure are more likely to be minorities and from households and zip codes with lower incomes.

A Need to Support Older Novice Drivers: National Teen Driver Safety Week

September 29, 2014
Recent research tells us that nationally a significant minority of drivers get their licenses after their 18th birthday. These young drivers get licensed without the protective benefits of Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL), except in New Jersey where full GDL extends to all novice drivers under age 21, and without exposure to educational campaigns when they first begin to drive. For National Teen Driver Safety Week (#teendriving2014), CIRP@CHOP hopes to spark a new conversation about actions we can take to support this vulnerable group.
