AAA says Number of Licensed Teen Drivers on the Rise

 

AAAWashington, D.C. – More than 60% of teens got their driver’s license before the age of 18, according to new research from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. An 11% increase since 2012.

The new report reveals a changing trend in teen licensure from when the Foundation first evaluated the issue in 2012. At the time, the country was just emerging from a recession and many young people cited their family’s inability to afford the high cost of driving as a reason why they did not obtain their license sooner.

New AAA Foundation study shows more teens are obtaining their license before the age of 18. (AAA)
