          What is Graduated Driver License or GDL ?

The Graduated Driver License law was strengthened in 2005 when the Oklahoma Legislature passed HB 1653. This law requires teens to apply for the license, which restricts their driving time to the hours of 5 a.m. to 11 p.m., with the exceptions for driving to work, school, church or related activities, or if a licensed driver is seated next to the teenager. The bill also prevents teenage drivers from chauffeuring their friends around town, prohibiting teens with a restricted license from driving with multiple passengers younger than age 21 (other than family).
