National Teen Driver Safety Week 2015

National Teen Driver Safety Week (NTDSW) is a time designated by Congress each year to raise awareness of teen driver safety topics and to encourage safe teen driver and passenger behavior. Now in its eighth year, NTDSW takes place October 19-25, 2014. This year's theme is 'Support Older Novice Drivers: Build Awareness of the Trend in Delayed Licensure.' Many youth delay getting driver licenses until after age 18 and do so mainly for economic reasons and not to avoid Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) requirements. It can be a practical, responsible choice for families, but there are things they need to know to keep young novice drivers safe.  

Read this blog post about how teens that delay licensure can create a "Personal GDL" to stay safe.
