Getting a driver’s license is a rite of passage for teenagers, and many young people start the process with an instruction permit at the age of 15. Obtaining a permit is part of Illinois’s graduated driver’s license program, which introduces new, inexperienced drivers to the complexities of driving while minimizing the risks of car accidents associated with inexperience.
Anyone injured by an unlicensed or inexperienced driver should immediately contact a Chicago car accident attorney for a consultation.

These restrictions are meant to allow young drivers to learn while reducing the risk of them causing an accident. Unfortunately, permit drivers do not always follow them, and even when they do, inexperienced drivers can cause accidents.
