Specific changes to the requirements include:
-Restrictions for the number of passengers in a vehicle driven by a teen. During the first six months of being licensed, a teen can only carry one, non-family passenger who is younger than 18. After the first six months and until the junior driver turns 18, a limit of three non-family passengers until 18 is permitted.
