Teen Driver Statistics

Over the past several years, teen driving has received increased attention. Many individuals and organizations are committed to reducing one of the leading health threats to our nation's teens: crashes involving teens behind the wheel.

To help drive this change, we have compiled the latest teen driver statistics and facts from our research conducted at the Center for Injury Research and Prevention, as well as from other leading sources for this information, including the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)'s Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS)

Please read and share these teen driver statistics and facts with others in your community, school, and government to push for positive change. Although we are making progress in reducing the number of teen driver-related crashes, motor vehicle crashes remain the No. 1 cause of death for adolescents in the United States. We hope this information will emphasize the importance of teen driver safety for those who set direction in public health and traffic safety.
