When your teen enters her driving years, it can be a mix of excitement and worry for you both.  The more you know about the licensing process and teen driving laws in Colorado, and the more you communicate about the responsibilities that come with driving, the better prepared you both will be.

There’s almost nothing more exciting than the freedom and excitement that comes with getting your drivers license. But, with that comes a lot of responsibility. Find out what you need to do to get your license, and then learn about the laws for teen drivers in Colorado.
