Learning how to drive is a very important and exciting time of life. The freedom that the open road offers is very enticing to young drivers, but many don't realize the dangers they will face. Without the proper skills and knowledge, first time drivers are at an even greater risk for collisions and injuries on the road. To combat this, the Indiana BMV has instated a Graduated Driver's License System to ensure that young drivers get the training and practice they need before they can hit the road alone.
