Texas Graduated Driver Licensing

Although teen drivers constitute only a small percentage of the drivers on Texas roads, they are involved in fatal car crashes more often than any other group. In an effort to combat teen auto crashes and fatalities, the state implemented the Texas Graduated Driver License (GDL) program, effective January 1, 2002, to educate and train young new drivers its first graduated drivers license (GDL) law in 1997. The good news is that, as a result of the program, the number of teen crashes has decreased since the GDL was adopted.

The following table outlines the GDL requirements and restrictions for Texas.
