Teenage Drivers

The controversial bill raising the driving age in Massachusetts from 16-1/2 to 17-1/2, H4826, will be heard in today's House session. The bill also provides for more extensive driver education and a limit on cellphone use by teens while driving. This measure would make Massachusetts one of the most restrictive states in the country for teen driving. For minimum driving ages in other states, see State-by-State Driving Rules for Teenage Drivers. For more information on driving in Massachusetts, see Massachusetts Law About Traffic Violations.
