Older Novice Driver Crashes in New Jersey: Informing the Need for Extending Graduated Driver Licensing Restrictions

Graduated Driver Licensing systems have been shown to reduce rates of crashes, injuries, and deaths of young novice drivers. Although new drivers of all ages have elevated crash rates, and an estimated one in three drivers receive their first license at or after the age of 18, most U.S. states only apply Graduated Driver Licensing to new drivers younger than 18. This study investigates whether there is evidence to support extending key components of state Graduated Driver Licensing systems to new drivers ages 18 years and older.
