Teen drivers will soon see new driving restrictions along with earlier curfew times

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - California lawmakers moved to make newly licensed 18 and 19-year-olds follow rules that already apply to younger drivers.

Some teens wait to get their license until they are 18 and skip drivers education courses but, Assembly Bill 724 would change that and require new 18 and 19-year-old drivers to complete a 30-hour driver education course and six hours of professional driver training.
