CA: Advocates Calls on California to Strengthen GDL Law

150 150 Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety

Advocates urges California to enact Assembly Bill (AB) 2385. This legislation will improve California’s graduated driver licensing (GDL) law by requiring older teen and young adult novice drivers up to age 21 to participate in the state’s GDL program. AB 2385 is critically needed as the number of young drivers (aged 15 to 20) involved in fatal crashes in 2021 in California (474) was the highest recorded over the course of the 2012-2021 time period, and a staggering 15 percent increase from the previous year.
