Adults Required for Young New Drivers for 1st 50 Hours


The Knesset Economics Committee is expected to approve, Monday, regulations requiring an adult to be with new drivers under the age of 24. Under the regulations, new drivers in this age group will receive a six-month license requiring an adult to be present for at least 50 hours. That time would include 20 hours of city driving and 15 hours each of non-city driving and night driving.

If approved, the new regulations will go into effect on July 1st.
