Pennsylvania Teen Driver Statistics

For additional statistics, contact the Driver and Vehicle Services Press Office at 717-705-1092.

Note: PennDOT uses 1999 as a baseline for comparison because this was the year the Graduated Driver Licensing Program went into effect in Pennsylvania, which provided for stricter requirements in the licensing of 16 and 17-year-old, first-time drivers.
