Vermont: Lack of space puts brakes on young drivers’ education

When students wait, dangerous driving can result, says Nancy Andrus, driver training coordinator for the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles.

Once a person is 18, driver education is not a requirement to get a license, and that can be a problem.

“There are quite a few students who are waiting until they’re 18” to pursue driver’s licenses, because there isn’t enough room in school programs, and “we may have students slipping through the cracks without any driver education,” Andrus said.
