Yes, I think so. There are some very mature eighteen year olds and they give the impression that they could certainly handle a vehicle. I know of some people a lot older and the way they drive leaves me wondering how they past the driving test!

In my opinion the driving age should be raised to 18. At 16 the majority of kids are too immature and irresponsible. They get behind the wheel and push their vehicles to the limit. There is also alot of underage drinking and driving.

Yes, I think it should be 18. It is 18 in Chile. I think it's kind of crazy that it's at 16 in the United States... I think about all the 16 year olds I know, and how I would NEVER trust them to drive me around.

Definitely, i think 18 is perefect.Just because, 16-17 years old will be reckless in driving and moreover we should consider drivinga s a serious matter because of which so many accidents take place and so below 18 should not be considered for driving license as they maynot be matured that much at that age....

I think the correct age would be 16 or 17 because after that you become responsible and have more commitments & work to do...

Maybe. I definitely think it should be older than 16 or 17 whatever it is, because driving is a serious thing. People die everyday. But then again, there is nothing that proves that older people drive better or more safely as you see on a daily basis on the commute into work!! But, yes maybe it should be 18.

The legal driving age is 18 yrs and i think it is perfect.This is the age when maturity and responsibility begins to take over the childish teenager.Any age below 18 will make it risky for the driver and the other people driving around.

No way! My country the legal age is determined by the state. Some states have it set at 15 and others 16 but 18 is just way too old and people mature way before then anyways. It's better to get experience earlier on, so when you go away to college you're a better and more experienced driver. Plus, if your 18 when you learn, whose going to teach you? You should already be moved out of their house by now.
