A teen driver program that gradually gives teens full driving privileges is credited with reducing teen driver fatalities by 54.2% in Illinois. According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, 15 year olds must log 50 driving hours and nine months with a permit before taking the test for their license. After that, they are subject to further time-of-day and passenger restrictions.

The National Safety Council recommends a graduated driving program for all teen drivers.
