Along with the involvement of parents, Illinois’ Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) Program will help teens gain the experience they need for a lifetime of safe and responsible driving. Since implementation of the new GDL provisions in 2008, teen driving deaths in the state are down by nearly 60 percent. As a result, Illinois’ GDL Program has been lauded by traffic safety organizations across the country and remains a national model for teen driver safety.
Parents may view their teen's (under age 18) driving record for free through the Secretary of State Web site. Several security features will protect the teen's privacy and ensure that only the parents/legal guardians are granted access to the teen's driving record.
