  • Research by The Allstate Foundation indicates that parents are the No. 1 influence on their teen when it comes to learning to drive.
  • Printable PDFs are available in English and Spanish for each state.

Know the Laws in Your State.

  • Graduated Driver Licensing is a system required by law in all states that slowly exposes teens to the driving experience and phases them into full driving privileges.
  • GDL is proven effective at reducing teen drivers' high crash rates by up to 40 percent.
  • A video from the National Safety Council and sponsored by The Allstate Foundation clearly explains graduated driver licensing – in English and Spanish.
  • The Foundation also offers a chart with the basics of GDL Laws by state. Printable PDFs of the chart are available in English and Spanish.
