Most states have laws and regulations for all of the new teenage drivers out there and Pennsylvania is no stranger to this. This laws are so important to easing the new drivers into different driving situations. If we were to throw a teenager into a vehicle along with all of the distractions that older drivers deal with they could be overwhelmed and could put them into dangerous situations.
Pennsylvania has a graduated licensing program and a junior drivers program. These two programs are to help keep track of what the teen drivers are up to not put them in dangerous situations. The programs help to slowly lift the restraints from them as they get more skilled behind the wheel.
One of the laws involved with the junior drivers training is that they must have fifty to sixty-five hours of supervised driving before they are allowed to get their actual drivers license. The supervised driver has to include hours of inclement weather and night driving. They have also included a law that restricts the junior drivers from having too many passengers. The junior driver is not allowed to transport more than one passenger under the age of 18 in their vehicle for the first six months, but this excludes any of the driver’s family members. However, if the junior driver has an adult in the vehicle then they are allowed to have more than one passenger. After the six months is over they are allowed to have three passengers in the vehicle. If the junior driver gets into an accident then they will be pushed back down to having only one passenger.
To get your junior driver a nice safe vehicle to learn in, you can head on over to BMW 3 Series dealer in Pennsylvania, Otto’s BMW. They have some great vehicles that would fit perfectly for any new driver.
