A rumor that the minimum driving age is going to increase to 18 has been floating around for as long as we can remember.
As of today there is no California Law pending or proposed to change the driving age. It is, and will main for the foreseeable future, age 16.
Spread the word, and hopefully we get finally stamp out this silly rumor!
Also remember, you can begin Driver Education at age 15, and Behind-the-Wheel training at 15 1/2. Check out our Teen Training Page for details on our available programs.
