Teen Driver Safety

Teen Driving
The State of Illinois utilizes a Graduated Driver's License (GDL) Law for teen drivers. Details on the phases of a GDL can be found on the Illinois Secretary of State website.

Teen Passengers
Illinois law prohibits persons between the ages of 15 and 20 to be a passenger in a vehicle operated by a driver holding a GDL during the first 12 months that the driver holds the license, (or until the driver turns age 18, whichever occurs first) if another person under the age of 20 is present.
