I agree that the driving age should be lowered, but I think the students that are getting the permits should be in honors/advanced classes, or have a very high GPA. Driving at a younger age should be a "reward".

I agree, but also the teenagers can start working at 14 so they might not be able to afford one.

I agree with Lindsay. I would also ask that the driving age be capped at 75 to keep the other dangerous drivers off the road.

i agree that the driving age should be lowered how will kids ever learn to be a good driver in the learn when they are older. kids need that time at age 14 to learn to drive if they go to collage right out of high school they would have only had 2 years to practice driving that is not enough time for kids to learn to drive they should start at 14 so by the time high school is over they will have had 5 years of driving and 14 year olds will be very good drives!!! LOWER THE DRIVING AGE TO 14!!!!!
