Driver's license in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In the United States, driver's licenses are issued by each individual state (including Washington, D.C. and the territories), rather than the federal government because of the political concept of federalism. Drivers are normally required to obtain a license from their state of residence and all states recognize each other's licenses for temporary visitors subject to normal age requirements. A state may also suspend an individual's driving privilege within its borders for traffic violations. Many states share a common system of license classes, with some exceptions, and commercial license classes are standardized by federal regulation at 49 CFR part 383.[1][2]

In 1899 Chicago and New York City were the first locales to require testing before being allowed to operate a motor vehicle.[3]Massachusetts and Missouri were the first US states to require a license for operating a motor vehicle in 1903; however, Missouri did not require testing before a license was granted.[4]

Pennsylvania's 1909 licensing laws were the first to give an age restriction ("18 years of age") and the first state to allow 16-year-olds to drive (accompanied by a licensed driver) was Connecticut in 1921.[5]

This article is persuasive because it show how back in 1899-1909 people of 18 years could drive unaccompanied but people of the age of 16 had to be supervised.

L-plated people need the experience we should just leave it as is and not cut the hours down so far around 90-100 but not 80.

Learner drivers need experience driving on the roads but spending 120 hours in a car with your parents is a bit too much
Nick Angel's comment, June 4, 2013 4:30 AM
Even if learner drivers need the experience 120 hours is satisfying because they need that experience and can get it with more hours and guidance from their parents.
Jacob Lee's comment, June 6, 2013 9:27 PM
The 120 hours of driving with your parents is not only a burdon on you but also your parents have to give up 120+ hours over a 2 year period just to teach you how to drive
