graduated drivers license

Teenage & Adult Driver Responsibility Act (TADRA) is a graduated driver's license program for young drivers ages 15 to 17. It involves an intense, three-step educational process that allows the young driver to gain more experience behind the wheel with certain restrictions in place.

As teens complete the requirements of their current permit or license, they are allowed to graduate to a less restrictive license and eventually receive a full unrestricted license.

To help reduce the number of teen driving accidents, every state (including Georgia) and the District of Columbia now have graduated driver licensing laws to help teens get more experience behind the wheel before they’re fully licensed. In other words, TADRA laws save young lives.

Georgia TADRA restrictions for 16- and 17-year-old drivers with a license

• For the first six months, only immediate family members can ride in the car.

• During the second six months, only one passenger under the age of 21 and family

members are allowed.

After one year, no more than three passengers under 21 are allowed.

Curfew for drivers age 16-17 is 12 midnight to 5 am.
