Graduated Driver License (GDL) Program Act 394 expanded the graduated driver license law to its current structure in 2009.  Graduated driver license was developed to allow teens to gain driving experience, through the use of restrictions for optimal risk reduction.  GDL limits age, night-time driving, passengers, and cell phone use mandates seat belt use.
