Florida Graduated Driver Licensing

Teen car crashes occur in southern states more than any other region of the country. In an effort to address this alarming statistic, Florida implemented a Graduated Driver License (GDL) law to educate and train young new drivers.

The good news is that as a result of its GDL program, Florida has seen a 9% decrease in the number of accidents involving teens.
