Question: Did Arizona pass a law where you can't drive until you are 18?
Answer: No, Arizona passed a graduated licensing law. All 15, 16 and 17-year olds applying for a graduated driver license on or after July 18, 2000, are affected by the new law, regardless of when they may have applied for an instruction permit Even holders of instructional permits received before July 18, 2000 must hold the instructional permit for a full five months before they can apply for a graduated license.

There is also a great deal of information on the Arizona Department of Motor Vehicles Web site

the stereotype of teens is unfair and i think that it is reasonable for a longer permit time but all inexperienced drivers drive unsafely so it doesnt matter the age.

if the law passes that you have to be 18 to drive there is goin to be a drop in work force dor smaller busness because half of the work force are 16-18 and they would have no way of getting there.!!!

Rumor has it that sometime next year (2006) no one will be able to apply or get a license till he/she is 18. This new law must be fought! Take a stand and fight for your right to drive at 16!

I think that we should get our permit at 14 and not be able to get our liscence untill 16 because then we have time to practice... well i have been driving since 12 but just in my dads pastures not anymore... the laws should be rediscussed
