When a teen receives their junior or provisional license in the state of Pennsylvania, he or she will follow the Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) law which includes passenger and nighttime driving restrictions. The GDL law is designed to keep young drivers safe and minimize risk as they continue to gain experience.
To learn more, check out Impact’s free, 1-hour Pennsylvania GDL Parent Module* that will guide you and teens through the GDL program and PA young driver laws. This module also covers risks for teen drivers and strategies to help prevent motor vehicle crashes among this age group.
*Note: Users need to create a free account with Impact Teen Drivers. Once the account is created, users will be able to access the online modules.
