Changes to Teen Driving Law to Take Effect Tuesday

Changes to Teen Driving Law to Take Effect Tuesday

If you have a teen driver in your home, or if a teen anticipates getting his or her permit soon, please be aware of significant changes to Pennsylvania’s Graduated Driver’s License (GDL) law that were made this year.

Under Act 81 of 2011, which takes effect at the end of the week, behind-the-wheel training requirements are changing for teens who will get their permits after Dec. 27 and those who haven’t yet passed the driver’s test by Tuesday.

Those new rules require 65 hours of behind-the-wheel training, including 10 hours at night and five hours during poor weather conditions.

Specifically, drivers younger than 18 will not be permitted to transport more than one passenger who is under 18 and is not an immediate family member unless they are accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

After six months, the junior driver may transport up to three passengers younger than
18 who are not immediate family members without a parent or legal guardian present, but only if that driver has not been convicted of a driving violation or has not been partially or fully responsible for a reportable crash.

The law also requires that junior drivers and passengers under the age of 18 must wear a seat belt, and children under the age of eight must be fastened in a child restraint system. The seat belt provisions of the new law are primary offenses, meaning a driver can be stopped and cited solely for that violation.

More information on the changes for teen drivers can be found at by clicking on the “New Teen Driver Law 2011” button.

Ok, BUT they should have a few requirements for people over 75 also. God love them, but they cause a lot of accidents.

Yes Indeed!And I would also add that cops need to start arresting old people more for going 35 in a 55!Or 20 in a 45!This is just a much a safety hazard if not more than people speeding!Especially when people like me are running late for work and have to pass their old butts to get to work on time!Putting everyones life at risk!Please atleast go the speed limit people!Thank you!Merry X-mas and a Happy New Year Grandma!P.S. If you can't drive atleast the speed limit then maybe you shouldn't be driving at all!
