Why is there a random section entitled "Florida rules"? Shouldn't this be merged with the lower section about specifics in the United States? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 01:40, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
Georgia Driving to School Law
The part about the Georgia law that says drivers with permits can drive to school and school functions isn't true. I looked at the Georgia DMV website and it says nothing of the sort.Dobby421 (talk) 21:06, 16 December 2007 (UTC)
UK Provisonal Conditions
Doesn't the accompanying adult have to have a dead licence or can they be joe blow off f the street, coming out of jail for selling crack who does it have to be? I would have added it, but I'm not sure. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Reverieuk (talk • contribs) 00:48, 1 March 2007 (UTC).
This must be old, because according to the NCDOT (North Carolina Deivision of Motor Vehicles), Driving is a legal privilege and responsibility. If you are 18 years of age or older you may apply for an original North Carolina driver license or a learner permit.

"In the United States, the minimum age at which a person can receive a learner's permit varies by state, ranging from fourteen to fifty five."
Fifty five years old?!? Either this sentence was subject to vandalism, or some state has some pretty twisted legislature. The oldest minimum driving age I see in the article (other than this one) is 18. I marked the 'fact' dubious. --Star Trek enthusiast (talk) 13:48, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
Never mind, I fixed it using an age from elsewhere in the article.--Star Trek enthusiast (talk) 23:10, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
Any restrictions on the condition of the supervisor
Can a person holding a learner's permit be supervised by a person of the proper age and stuff, but who, for example, has taken enough alcohol to be considered DUI if that person was driving (but they're not)? --126.96.36.199 (talk) 19:09, 28 March 2009 (UTC)
this is a good question which i have wondered myself and always assumed so
I know that in Australia, the supervising driver must be under the legal drinking limit, as if they were driving themselves. --Marrakkew
you can get a driver's license at 16 in Alaska
On the page it says you have to be 18 to get a driver's license in Alaska, but you can get them at 16. I do know that for the first couple of months it is a limited license or something, but after those few months if you don't screw up you can get a full one. or something. but yeah, it's not 18. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 00:37, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
From United Kingdom section.
- But the period of learning may be increased soon, making it almost impossible to receive a full driving licence before they are 18. "http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/driving/article2204067.ece Driving age set to rise to cut youth death toll"
The Australian section consisted of out-of-date rules applying to just one state out of six. I have changed this to a simple sentence and a link to the Driving license in Australia page, which has detailed information on each state's rules. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 09:59, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
California student rules
According to several posts at http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=Ag5ek0C_HOiv0TJBclPU9eMa5XNG;_ylv=3?qid=20120913215453AAT8T2W, the sentence "In California exclusively, permit holders are allowed to commute to and from school without the supervision of an adult." is not correct. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 05:56, 14 September 2012 (UTC)
