CLARK — Students in Laura Bundy’s fifth period driver’s education class at Arthur L. Johnson High School in Clark just learned about the Graduated Driver’s License (GDL.) The GDL is a program teen and first-time drivers must complete to get their unrestricted basic driver license. The GDL law came into effect on, Jan. 1, 2001. The program is designed to reduce the number of driving fatalities among teen and first-time divers and their passengers. By, having more experience, new drivers will be more capable of handling all types of driving situations.
There is a three-step route to the GDL. The first step is the Permit (age 16). The requirements are to obtain parent/guardian signature, pass vision and written tests, drive supervised and pass the road test. The next step is the Probationary License (age 17). The requirements are to complete the student Permit or examination Permit necessities. The last step is the Basic License (age 18). The requirements are to complete the Probationary License requirements.
