The State of Minnesota will be cracking down more on teen drivers starting this coming January First when the drivers will be required to complete more hours of behind-the-wheel training.
The Rochester Post-Bulletin reports the teen drivers, under the age of 18, will be required to complete 50 hours of supervised driving instead of 30 hours in order to get their license.
If parents agree to take a 90-minute parent awareness class, that requirement would be reduced to 40 hours.
State lawmakers approved the changes last spring. The bill also requires all driver education programs to offer the parent awareness class.
