Graduated Driver Licensing
Graduated driver licensing (GDL) systems help new drivers gain skills under low-risk conditions. As drivers move through stages, they are given extra driving privileges. These privileges may include driving at night or with passengers. GDL systems are proven to reduce teen crashes and deaths.
All states have three-stage GDL systems, though laws vary. The three stages are
- learner's permit,
- intermediate license (sometimes called a provisional license), and
- unrestricted license.
