What else do you look forward to more than getting your license?

Not much, right?  But, with the added freedom that comes with driving, also comes a lot of responsibility.

Colorado takes teen driving safety very seriously.  And, for good reason.  Crashes are the leading cause of death for teens in Colorado and across the country.

Colorado's GDL Laws?

GDL stands for Graduated Driver Licensing-laws, and are designed to help you develop important driving skills gradually while adhering to important restrictions in your first years of driving.  GDL laws are designed with your safety in mind.

GDL affects the steps required to get your license, and also the specific restrictions you'll need to obey until you turn 18.  Passenger restrictions, cell phone bans, and curfews are just a few examples of GDL laws.
